AbstractPerennial and annual grass composition changes were studied for several years in two locations formerly dominated by chaparral. Hardinggrass, smilo, and desert wheatgrass increased but other seeded perennial grasses decreased in abundance. Annual grasses and weeds fluctuated from year to year but generally increased in abundance.
