Seed transfer of woody shrubs in Alberta - Are current seed zones applicable?

Description

This report investigates the need for a seed zone map specifically adapted to shrub species. The objectives were to: 1) review literature on life history characteristics of commonly used shrubs and compare these characteristics to white spruce, one of the primary species for which seed zones in Alberta were developed; 2) provide an estimate of the current use of shrubs for re-vegetation in Alberta's boreal region; and 3) summarise the business case and methodology for developing a seed zone map for shrubs in Alberta.
