Description:
The annual grass cheatgrass (Bromus tectorum L.)-or downy brome-is one of the most significant invasive weeds in the western United States because it reduces forage quantity and quality, alters wildfire regimes, impacts species diversity, and reduces wildlife habitat. In this handbook, we present information that should assist in developing a strategic approach to managing this invasive annual grass. We focus on managing cheatgrass in rangelands and natural areas but not in cultivated croplands. Many of the principles discussed here also apply to other invasive weeds in natural systems, and we encourage readers to incorporate the strategic management framework into other weed management programs. This handbook is not designed to be a comprehensive compilation of all literature related to cheatgrass, but rather a guide to assist land managers and others with developing a cheatgrass management program. The framework described here encourages managing an "ecological system" rather than viewing programs simply from the perspective of killing an undesirable plant.
