Title: Evaluating Postfire Seeding Treatments Designed to Suppress Cheatgrass (Bromus Tectorum) in Ponderosa Pine Forests on the Colorado Plateau

Project Proposal Abstract: Fire is a widely used ecosystem restoration tool in ponderosa pine forests in the western United States. Fire can also promote the dominance of invasive alien plants, which often create additional fire and resource management problems. Prescriptions are therefore needed that will allow fire to be used as a management tool, while not promoting the dominance of invasive plants. This proposal is to fund the evaluation of experimental postfire seeding of combined cool and warm season grass species to minimize the postfire dominance of the invasive alien cheatgrass (Bromus tectorum) in a ponderosa pine forest on the Colorado Plateau. It is submitted in response to JFSP AFP 2005-2-Task 1, which addresses local information needs and the establishment of demonstration study sites. The results will be communicated to other land managers and scientists through a website, field workshop, fact sheets, reports, seminars, peer-reviewed publications, and publication briefs. The study site will also be maintained by the Lake Mead National Recreation Area as a demonstration site where the long-term effects of the seeding treatments can be observed and the information integrated back into the process of land management planning.
