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 below:

(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.
