Description: Attempts to improve habitat for wildlife and increase forage for livestock contributed to development of native shrub seed industries in the western United States and in Australia. Shrub seedings and plantings in both countries are concentrated in areas with low and unpredictable precipitation and high probability for planting failures. In addition, both countries have emphasized the use of native shrub species. However, the scope of these industries and the political, economic, and social forces shaping them have differed considerably.

Keywords: native shrub seed industries, shrublands, revegetation
