Abstract/Summary:
Using seed zones to select genetically appropriate plant materials from the SER Great Basin Chapter, The Great Basin-Native Plant Project and Fire Science Exchange, the BLM Plant Conservation Program, and the US Forest Service Rocky Mountain Research Station. Goal one of the National Seed Strategy is to have available and use genetically appropriate seed for restoration. Holly Prendeville, Research Geneticist, USFS PNW, Corvallis, Oregon, explains provisional and empirical seed zones and discusses tools available that allow us to use seed zones to select genetically appropriate plant materials for restoration.
