Native Perennials: Evaluation of seed germination protocols for Montana natives Penstemon eriantherus, Phacelia hastata, and Sphaeralcea coccinea.
Native Trees: Baseline hormone and temperature response curves for rooting of harwood and softwood cuttings of bur oak accessions evaluated and selected for windbreak properties. Testing of novel methods of asexual propagation such as etiolation and banding and altering of tissue formation by manipulating light quality.
Native Grasses: Evaluation of Native Grasses for Turfgrass Applications for the Intermountain West, species water requirements. Also evaluation of California native grasses for highway revegetation in sensitive areas.
