Activity Type: Monitoring

Subject/Discipline: Other

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

Findings and Status:  No significant difference in mortality rates between seedlings and clones used for restoration. Spring planting resulted in a 10% mortality rate due to removal of plants from holes by grazing deer. No significant difference between inoculated and non-inoculated planting material. No significant difference in plant size or flower number between vegetatively propagated material and seedlings grown in a common environment.
