Seed-based webinar follow-up #27

Exotic species are more tolerant to different conditions (temperature, precipitation, etc.) than native species. How to ensure that restoration from native species will be effective from these techniques?

I think much of the answer to invasive species (I'm not concerned much about exotic vs native unless those exotics are truly invasives) comes in the form of management rather than restoration technique. Some sites have tried to help themselves by planting high densities of forbs to try to overwhelm invasives, but even in those situations, patrolling for and eliminating invasive species is extremely important during the first couple years of establishment. Time spent during those first couple years will save a lot more time in subsequent years.
