Increasing the availability of dry ecotype native seeds and plant materials for the Great Basin (Nevada Seed Strategy Actions 1.3.5, 2.2.2, 2.2.3, and 2.2.4)
Lyon County and Statewide Nevada
Plant seeds that are adapted to hot and dry climates are necessary for successful restoration efforts in the Great Basin and Nevada. This project will increase the availability of native seeds and plant material from ecotypes adapted to dry conditions for restoration. Methods of processing and increasing locally adapted native seed will be developed and refined, thus lowering the barrier to entry and allow for greater production of seed needed for restoration ofplant communities.
