Permit Expiration Date: Jan 01, 1998

Permit Start Date: Jan 01, 1998

Study Starting Date: Jan 01, 1994

Study Ending Date: Jan 01, 1996

Study Status: Completed

Activity Type: Other

Subject/Discipline: Ecology (Aquatic, Marine, Terrestrial)

Objectives: Develop large scale vegetative propagation and seedling propagation protocols. 2) Determine the physical and biological factors significant to the establishment success of C. mazama. 3) Develop photograpphic monitoring protocols for long term monitoring of populations. 4) Develop educational materials for both the generic public and park personnel.

Findings and Status: Large scale vegetative propagation and seedling propagation methods have been developed. Cloned material has been successfully propagated and planted in Fall 1997. Stereo photoplots were established, black & white, color and IR film was evaluated. Indentification with black & white film as most accurate (100%) at placing individuals in one of four demographic stage classes. Vesicular-Arbuscular mychorrizal associations with C. mazama have been documented.

For this study, were one or more specimens collected and removed from the park but not destroyed during analyses? No
