Using a diverse seed mix to establish native plants

evegetating burned areas is a for-
midable challenge facing resource
managers in arid lands of the south-
western US. Southwestern deserts, such
as the Sonoran, are not generally
thought to have a history of frequent
burns. Multiple ignition sources com-
bined with increased fuel loads (often
resulting from invasion of exotic annu-
al grasses and increased density of non-
palatable shrubs), however, have
increased frequencies, sizes, and severi-
ties of wildfires (Schmid and Rogers
1988). Many long-lived native species in
these deserts are not considered fire
