This bulletin addresses the use of native plants and adapted seed sources in reclamation of severely disturbed lands. Native plants represent key resources for restoration of ecosystem functions and wildland health. Selection of adapted seed sources may improve the short-term establishment of plants as well as the long-term sustainability of plant and animal communities at reclamation sites. Background information and practical guidelines are outlined to assist restoration practitioners and land managers when selecting plant materials for site revegetation.
