ABSTRACT
Land managers need ecologically and cost-effective strategies for revegetating arid
lands, such as the Mojave Desert in the southwestern United States. Many disturbances
failed agricultural attempts, grazing by exotic herbivores (e.g., burros, cattle), creating
roads, land clearing for military or mining activities, off-road vehicle use, and wildfires
