• Germination of Forest Range Species from Southern British Columbia

      McLean, A. (Society for Range Management, 1967-09-01)
      In the laboratory, seed of 10 out of 25 forest range shrubs and herbs germinated without either scarification or stratification. Stratification was required for 5 species and improved the germination of 10 others. Seventeen species germinated at 1 C after prolonged stratification; this characteristic would enable seedlings to become established ahead of tame grasses seeded in the spring.
