NOTICE OF INTENT: Restoring Biotic Diversity in Lehmann Lovegrass Dominated Grasslands: Fertile Islands: Management techniques aimed to eradicate Lehmann lovegrass (Eragrostis lehmanniana) have been unsuccessful but more holistic options may be effective for at least partially restoring biotic diversity to these invaded lands. One such approach is to more intensively manage smaller patches which are commonly referred to as fertile islands. This research project tests the effectiveness of the fertile island approach in a nested, randomized, factorial design across two different locations: the Coronado National Memorial and the Chiricahua National Monument. There are two Lehmann lovegrass treatments: hand pulling and no action. There are three seeding treatments: broadcast seeding, pelletized seed, and no seeding. There are three amendment treatments: Pine mulch, Lehmann thatch, and no amendment. Plots will be monitored for establishment of both natives and lovegrass. This research will help to establish which management techniques, if any, offer demonstrable increases in native plant species or decreases in lovegrass abundance in areas currently dominated by Lehmann lovegrass.
