This chapter evaluates the efficiency of experimental techniques in reducing invasive plant species in California grassland ecosystems. It discusses native plant restoration approaches, focusing on techniques to tip the competitive balance toward native species and away from exotic species. These techniques include the reduction of soil nitrogen availability, livestock grazing, prescribed burning, herbicide application, and biological control.

Keywords:   invasive plant species, California grassland, plant restoration, native species, exotic species, soil nitrogen, grazing, burning, herbicide application, biological control
