Dryland ecosystems form the largest global biome and support one third of the global human population but are highly vulnerable to land degradation via disturbance and climate change. Despite widespread demand for dryland restoration and rehabilitation, little information is available to help land managers effectively reestablish native perennial vegetation across drylands. RestoreNet is a restoration field trial network that systematically tests appropriate revegetation techniques across environmental gradients. We tracked seedling density and height following the use of different seed mixes and treatments to increase soil moisture at seven RestoreNet sites across Arizona from summer 2018 – 2019.
