Description: The usefulness of measuring community dominance factors and the soil parameters of geometric mean particle size and percent fines as predictors of first-year bare-root establishment of Wyoming big sagebrush seedlings was investigated. The study was conducted on six sandy soils in south-central Washington. Soil parameters that could affect the distribution of Sandberg’s bluegrass and cheatgrass as dominants in seral plant communities were also examined. Plant health was inversely related to increasing geometric mean particle size and directly related to increasing percent fines. Percent fines were also directly related to cheatgrass cover on these sandy soils. The highest sagebrush survival occurred on the alien-dominated sites.

Keywords: wildland shrubs, genetics, biodiversity, disturbance, ecophysiology, community ecology
