Seed Germination Information

Project Description

This page hosts a file with germination information for the following relevant genera: Artemisia, Astragalus, Bromus, Dalea, Elymus, Eriogonum, Helianthus, Koeleria (macrantha), Penstemon, Ratibida, Sphaeralcea, and Sporobolus. The species studied generally are not CPNPP priorities, but the information on congeners mya prove useful when species-specific information is lacking.

Goals and Targets

Primary Goals:

  • The projects collected in this database contain summaries and conclusions from a wide variety of papers regarding restoration research relevant to the Colorado Plateau. Using the search engine, search for a particular species (i.e. Atriplex canescens, fourwing saltbush), type of study (i.e. common garden, reciprocal transplant) or keyword (i.e. ecotype, grazing) in order to view the citations, summaries and conclusions of relevant papers.

Targeted Habitats:

No targeted habitats were identified for this project.
