Abstract: Abstract: These guidelines were prepared to help military land managers select appropriate seed mixtures for revegetation on actively used training lands in the Intermountain West of the United States. Recommending a seed mixture is complicated because of the various ecosystems, land uses, soils, and plant selection goals. We wanted to keep the guidelines as simple as possible but still be able to recommend seed mixtures adapted for this region. We have broken down the process into four steps that we feel over the important aspects of selecting the most adapted seed mixture to meet revegetation goals on actively used lands such as training ranges, airfields, and MOUT sites. Tables provide information to assist in selection of species to include in seed mixtures for various soil types, climates, and land usage. Characteristics of the militarily important plants mentioned in this guide are also given. This information is provided in two appendices containing a summary table and individual plant description sheets.
