    Description

    Plummer and others (1968) proposed 10 principles to follow when planning and implementing rangeland revegetation programs. These principles - or basic considerations for rangeland managers - are applicable to most sites in the Western United States (Jordan 1981; Merkel and Herbal 1973), and many projects in the Intermountain area have been conducted successfully by following them. This chapter provides a discussion of each principle and refers the reader to the other chapters of this book where more information may be found. These should be considered general guidelines and may require modification for local or unusual situations.
