Title: Evaluation of native plant seeds and seeding in the east-side central Cascades ponderosa pine zone

Author: Vance, Nan C.;

Date: 2010

Source: Gen. Tech. Rep. PNW-GTR-823. Portland, OR: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Northwest Research Station. 85 p

Publication Series: General Technical Report (GTR)

Description: In dry, open coniferous forests of the montane West, stand-replacing wildfires and land use activities alter the composition and abundance of native grasses and forbs by degrading the habitat and accelerating the invasion of exotic annuals. On these lands, native forbs and grasses delayed or prevented from recovery by natural processes may require intervention through supplementary seeding. However, effective seeding of native plants requires that their seed traits and the potential outcome of the seeding be better understood.

Keywords: Postfire rehabilitation, native forb, native grass, Pinus ponderosa/, Purshia tridentate/Festuca idahoensis
