Abstract:
Rubber Rabbitbrush (Chrysothamnus nauseosus), a common desert shrub native to the western United States, grows over a wide range of environmental conditions from Mexico to Canada. Rabbitbrush grows well in disturbed sites and can grow in saline soils. It has a high rate of net photosynthesis for a woody C3 plant and does not become light saturated at full sun. The many current and potential uses for the shrub include forage value for wildlife and livestock, landscape use, production of natural rubber, potential hydrocarbon crop, and potential source of natural insecticides and fungicides. Its potential has not been fully recognized.
