Irrigation to enhance native seed production for Great Basin restoration

Publications Posted on: October 07, 2015
Native shrublands and their associated grasses and forbs have been disappearing from the Great Basin as a result of grazing practices, exotic weed invasions, altered fire regimes, climate change and other human impacts. Native forb seed is needed to restore these areas.

Environmental regulation of dormancy loss in seeds of Lomatium dissectum

Publications Posted on: October 04, 2012
Lomatium dissectum (Nutt.) Mathias & Constance is a perennial plant found across much of western North America. For disturbed lands within this range, there is interest in using L. dissectum in restoration. A problem in the propagation of L. dissectum is that at the time of dispersal the seeds are dormant.

Propagation protocol for production of Lomatium dissectum (Nutt.) Mathias and Constance seeds

Fernleaf biscuitroot naturally occurs from British Columbia and Saskatchewan south to California and New Mexico and extends eastward to Wyoming and Colorado. Seed matures in July into August. Wildland seed disarticulates readily and is easily hand collected. Very clean collections can be made by shaking ripened inflorescences over a bag or tarp.

Plant Guide: Fernleaf biscuitroot (Lomatium dissectum [Nutt.] Mathias and Constance)

Publications Posted on: October 03, 2012
Established plants of fernleaf biscuitroot, like other members of the Lomatium genus, begins growth very early in the spring, often just following snow melt, providing crucial early forage for many wildlife and domestic animals. It is considered a very valuable forage species due to its large stature and high biomass production levels.

Environmental regulation of dormancy loss in seeds of Lomatium dissectum (Apiaceae)

Publications Posted on: May 11, 2009
Lomatium dissectum (Apiaceae) is a perennial, herbaceous plant of wide distribution in Western North America. At the time of dispersal, L. dissectum seeds are dormant and have under-developed embryos. The aims of this work were to determine the requirements for dormancy break and germination, to characterize the type of seed dormancy, and to determine the effect of dehydration after embryo growth on seed viability and secondary dormancy.
