Great Basin Plant Materials Center Updated:03/2023

The Great Basin Plant Materials Center (NVPMC) is the newest Plant Materials Center in the United States. The NVPMC's service area includes Nevada and portions of eastern California, southern Oregon, and western Utah. The NVPMC will be a source of native plants and technology for the low precipitation and high salinity areas found in the Great Basin.

Invasive plants and animals have changed many ecosystems in the Great Basin. The Center's priorities include methods to reduce the harm done by invasives, re-establish desirable vegetation, and develop native plants to rehabilitate landscapes disturbed by invasive species, wildfire, and drought. The NVPMC collects, selects, and tests native plants to replenish native vegetation, expand the economy, and provide alternative sources of energy for Great Basin ecosystems challenged by climate change, drought, wildfire, and invasive species.

The soil, water, and air resources in the Great Basin face an environmental crisis. The damaging effects of repeated wildfires, expansion of land area infested with invasive weeds, and prolonged drought have left large areas of the hydrographic Great Basin on the verge of severe ecosystem degradation. The Center will develop native plant materials adapted to the extreme conditions found in the Great Basin.
