Chapter 8 - Species Summaries

The species summarized here include agronomic and native species that might be considered for range seeding projects in British Columbia. It is by no means a complete list, particularly if an objective is restoration of a native plant community. The species summaries were developed from various sources, and while the desire was to present complete information in a consistent format, this was not always achievable. In general, the information related to the adaptation and seeding of agronomic species is extensive. By comparison, the body of information related to the propagation and seeding of native species is increasing, but still limited.
