    Description

    The basic tenet of annual range management in California is that perennial grasses are unable to effectively compete with the naturalized alien annual species. Evidence from the field in northern California is not consistent with this thinking. An alternative view that perennial grasses are restricted in importance from overgrazing and excessive rest is presented. Implications for range productivity and stability in riparian zones and uplands are outlined from a rancher's perspective.
