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.
