DescriptionThis report was developed from discussions on the role of Ceanothus in western forests that took place at a workshop held November 22-24, 1982, at Oregon State University, Corvallis, Oregon. The workshop provided a forum for discussing research relevant to Ceanothus management. Major topics were autecology and synecology; interactions between Ceanothus species and the soil system; the physiological ecology of Ceanothus and associated conifers; and the effects of Ceanofhus on forest productivity and growth. The workshop was attended by scientists and land managers from government agencies, universities, and forest industry. This report summarizes available information concerning the biology and ecology of Ceanothus species in western forest ecosystems; describes and critiques methods, results, and conclusions of past research; discusses current investigations; identifies research needs; and includes an extensive bibliography and a listing of workshop participants involved or interested in Ceanothus research and management.
