Competitive effects of bluebunch wheatgrass, crested wheatgrass, and cheatgrass on antelope bitterbrush seedling emergence and survival by Derek B Hall( )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The competitive environment into which plant seedlings emerge often determines the survival and performance of these individuals. This study was designed to determine the effects of bluebunch wheatgrass (Pseudoroegneria spicata), crested wheatgrass (Agropyron cristatum), and cheatgrass (Bromus tectorum) on soil moisture depletion, associated antelope bitterbrush (Purshia tridentata) seedling emergence, xylem pressure potential, and subsequent survival. In the fall of 1992, antelope bitterbrush seed was sown into the following four established competitive matrices: (1) bluebunch wheatgrass, (2) crested wheatgrass, (3) cheatgrass, and (4) bare soil control plots. Soil moisture and bitterbrush seedling xylem pressure potential data were collected through the spring and summer of 1993. Antelope bitterbrush seedling survival data were collected through the spring and summer of 1993, and again in July 1994. Invasion of bur buttercup (Ranunculus testiculatus) in the spring of 1993 increased the competitive environments with densities of 470 plants per m2 in the crested wheatgrass, 760 in bluebunch wheatgrass, 920 in control and 1,060 in cheatgrass plots. Soil moisture in crested wheatgrass plots tended to be lower than soil moisture in the bluebunch wheatgrass plots. The number of emerged bitterbrush seedlings were significantly (r2 = 0.99) negatively correlated with the number of total annuals per m2. Antelope bitterbrush seedling xylem pressure potentials were less negative in the bluebunch wheatgrass plots compared with the other plots. Percent antelope bitterbrush seedling survival over 2 years was significantly higher (nearly twice) when grown in association with bluebunch wheatgrass than seedlings grown in association with crested wheatgrass, cheatgrass, or bur buttercup."

Restoring western ranges and wildlands( )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This work, in three volumes, provides background on philosophy, processes, plant materials selection, site preparation, and seed and seeding equipment for revegetating disturbed rangelands, emphasizing use of native species. The 29 chapters include guidelines for planning, conducting, and managing, and contain a compilation of rangeland revegetation research conducted over the last several decades to aid practitioners in reestablishing healthy communities and curbing the spread of invasive species. Volume 1 contains the first 17 chapters plus the index. Volume 2 contains chapters 18-23 plus the index. Volume 3 contains chapters 24-29 plus appendices and index."
Sage-grouse habitat restoration symposium proceedings, June 4-7, 2001, Boise, ID by Sage-Grouse Habitat Restoration Symposium( )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Declines in habitat of greater sage-grouse and Gunnison sage-grouse across the western United States are related to degradation, loss, and fragmentation of sagebrush ecosystems resulting from development of agricultural lands, grazing practices, changes in wildfire regimes, increased spread of invasive species, gas and oil development, and other human impacts. These losses are focusing management efforts on passive and active approaches to maintaining and restoring sagebrush rangelands. This series of 14 papers summarizes current knowledge and research gaps in sagebrush taxonomy and ecology, seasonal sage-grouse habitat requirements, approaches to community and landscape restoration, and currently available plant materials and revegetation technology to provide a basis for designing and implementing effective management prescriptions."
Proceedings, ecology and management of annual rangelands by Stephen B Monsen( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Annual weeds continue to expand throughout the West eliminating many desirable species and plant communities. Wildfires are now common on lands infested with annual weeds, causing a loss of wildlife habitat and other natural resources. Measures can be used to reduce burning and restore native plant communities, but restoration is difficult and costly."

Inventory of and rehabilitation recommendations for sites disturbed by modern man's activities in Grand Teton National Park by E. Durant McArthur( )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study has four principal objectives. The first was to locate and map the major areas in the Grand Teton National Park and the Rockefeller Memorial Parkway that have been disturbed or altered from their natural condition by modern man's activities. We were particularly concerned with those lands added to the Park in 1950 and up to the present. The second objective was to document the nature and extent of the disturbance at each site, including date of disturbance and the historical context in which the disturbances occurred. The third objective was to evaluate disturbed sites for cultural resource significance, whether or not artificial measures are needed to restore the sites to acceptable natural conditions, and how well they have progressed toward satisfactory restoration since they were disturbed. The final objective was to develop general guidelines and site specific plans for restoring or rehabilitating disturbed sites using information from the scientific and applied management literature and information that can be obtained from the disturbed sites themselves as to expected rates of natural recovery and the effectiveness of artificial measures that have been used previously."
