Abstract: Restoration practitioners have many seed material choices when restoring plant communities, but population variation that influences traits and plant performance makes this a less straightforward decision. My research explores the extent and structure of trait variation by looking at native seed source procurement or collection environment and outcomes for plant performance and survival. I explore root traits as an important interface between the plant and the environment and other neighbors and have evaluated Western US native species with budding research in tallgrass ecosystems.
