California has 300 native grasses species, and numerous ecotypes
of each species. We have developed a method to survey for the
right material for each revegetation requirement. Example of the
wealth of material that is available for only one California native
species, Bromus carinatus, in the San Francisco Bay area is shown
(Left) La Honda woods.. (Center) Marin
county chert.. (Right) Marin serpentine soil.
(Left)Pescadero coastal dwarf, (Center)San
Francisco sand dunes, (Right) Skyline mountains.
The choice of the proper ecotype for revegetation can bring
long-term success to a project.
