The Science Behind the Selection of Native Plant Materials for Restoration and Revegetation
Over the last decade, there has been increasing interest in using genetically appropriate seed for ecological restoration and revegetation efforts. However, little is known about the scale or magnitude of ecotypic variation among populations for many of the plants species being used for restoration. Furthermore, although locally adapted plant materials often are considered the gold standard for restoration, other genetic considerations may be equally as important to consider in highly degraded areas and areas with rapidly changing environmental conditions.
