Alaska Native Plant Research

     We have conducted a variety of research projects with Alaska native plants with the goal of encouraging their use in home and commercial landscapes; conserving wild populations and traditional Native knowledge; managing wild stands of berries; cultivating wild berries for small cottage industries; and assisting in restoration efforts of Alaska's beautiful wild landscapes. These pages include publications on a variety of topics and are subdivided into broad topic areas below. We have included some from authors outside GBG where they are important to Alaska horticulture.

     Please let us know if you encounter missing links. Also check links under ferns and perennials for more information on Alaska native plants.
