    Description

    The use of native plants in wildland restoration is critical to the recovery and health of ecosystems. Information from genecological and reciprocal transplant common garden studies can be used to develop seed transfer guidelines and to predict how plants will respond to future climate change. Tools developed from these data, such as universal response functions and trait shift maps, can help managers make informed decisions regarding restoration strategies, such as assisted migration, in the face of climate change.
