Adaptive Genetic Variation of Elymus glaucus (Blue Wildrye) in Northeast Oregon: Implications for Seed Collection and Management

Blue wildrye (Elymus glaucus) is a short-lived perennial bunchgrass native to the Blue Mountains of northeast Oregon and southeast Washington where it occurs over a wide range of ecological conditions. Blue wildrye is increasingly being used in restoration and re-vegetation projects due to its extreme drought tolerance, ability to persist on severely disturbed sites, and rapid germination and stand establishment. This study was initiated to examine adaptive patterns of variation in blue wildrye and develop local guidelines for seed collection and deployment.
