Displacement of Gardner saltbush (Atriplex gardneri) by halogeton (Halogeton glomeratus) is being recorded at several points in the Lower Green River Basin, Wyoming by line intercept measurements and by repeat photography. This paper gives results of the monitoring studies as of 2009. Total displacement of Gardner saltbush by halogeton has taken as little as 10 years at some locations. Loss of Gardner saltbush to halogeton has major management implications.
