Optimal seed mixtures and seeding rates for restoration of surface disturbances on Colorado shortgrass steppe
The discovery of oil and gas resources over the last decade has led to unprecedented localized and dispersed surface disturbances on shortgrass steppe ecosystems in the western US. Reclaiming and restoring these surface disturbances to native ecosystems through revegetation seeding has proven challenging. Seed mixes and rates currently used are generally similar across private and public sectors (3-10 species at rates ranging from 400-600 pure live seeds (PLS) m-2 broadcast seeded). The objective of this study was to determine an optimal seed mix diversity level and corresponding seeding rate ...
