Description: Seed movement guidelines for restoration activities are lacking for most native grasses, forbs, and shrubs. The forestry community has decades of experience in establishing seed zones and seed movement guidelines that may be of value to restoration managers. We review the history of seed zone development in forest trees, with emphasis on the Pacific Northwest, and make some suggestions concerning seed transfer guidelines for other native plants.
Keywords: seed movement, genetic variation, adaptation
