During the 1959 summer field season in the Jackson Hole area, a new project was started. This project, which is supported by the U.S. Forest Service, covers a study of the reproductive capacity and seedling establishment of native and introduced species of browse plants. Especial attention has been given to Rosa, Amelanchier and Prunus. Teton County is particularly rich in shrub species, and most of these have very definite distribution patterns. Reasons for restriction of habitat have been sought as preliminary to studies of seed germination. All of these shrubs are important browse for big game animals. Project Number 99.
