The workshop recorded in these proceedings was organized by the Alberta Reclamation Research Technical Advisory Committee as the first step in developing a Native Shrub Research Program for reclamation. While the importance of a detailed literature survey was recognized and is presently underway; the Committee also understood that a great deal of valuable information was of a practical nature and was not recorded in the literature. The workshop provided a forum for the exchange of information and experiences on three major topics: propagation, outplanting and species section. The discussions were very productive in helping the Committee identify areas for future research and those areas where sufficient knowledge already exists.
