Abstract/Summary:
This volume looks at the prospects for restoration of native steppe and meadow steppe communities, with an emphasis on methods that do not create areas of bare soil. Section 1 reviews work that has been done on the restoration of native steppe and meadow steppe. Section 2 reports on the results of pilot projects undertaken to (A) compare microbial soil communities in native and non-native vegetation at two meadow steppe and two steppe sites, (B) test the efficacy of bacterial control of a severe cheatgrass infestation, and (C) investigate the effectiveness of artificial ground covers on survival of transplanted native grass plugs.
