Abstract

Russian wildrye (Elymus junceus Fisch.) is a longlived perennial bunchgrass introduced to this continent from Siberia by the University of Saskatchewan in 1926 (Lawrence and Heinrichs, 1966). It is now widely distributed throughout the Northern Great Plains and Intermountain area (Figure 1). The species does well in the Northern Great Plains, but even though it is recommended for foothill ranges in the Intermountain area (Plummer, et aI, 1955), there are problems with establishment of Russian wildrye in the Intermountain area. This study was an attempt to fill in some of the gaps in the knowledge about establishment and survival of Russian wildrye on foothill ranges in Utah.
