Genetic Considerations in Propagating Native Shrubs, Forbs, and Grasses from Seed
Susan E. Meyer and Stephen B. Monsen
1992: Fallen Leaf Lake, CA
Abstract. -- Germination and emergence studies with native
species important for wildland restoration have demonstrated
major genetic variation in seed and seedling traits. Habitat
correlated differences between ecotypes have been documented
for many species. Large between-plant differences within
populations also appear to be the norm based on recent
studies. Nursery propagators need to consider this variation
in both collection and propagation procedures, so that
outplanted populations will represent adapted ecotypes with a
full range of within-population variation.
