Station ID: RN-PSW-130

Description: A sampling study was made of the number of bitterbrush seeds per trap from plots in northeastern California. The count per trap had a large variation for each plant. This variation was not reduced to an acceptable low level by grouping the seed traps according to their position relative to the plant crown. In the absence of additional information, it is recommended that seed traps should not be used and that a complete count of bitterbrush seeds per plant be made.
