Brushing effects on the growth and mechanical properties of Corispermum
mongolicum vary with water regime.

(2009) examined the reproductive effort of an annual plant Corispermum elongatum Bunge in two types of sandy habitats and found significant effect on the pattern of reproductive allocation.
(2009) who found greater reproductive effort of Corispermum elongatum growing on fixed or stabilized dunes compared to that on mobile or embryonic dunes.
During summer, their ration consisted of Corispermum sp (28.16%), Seriphidium santolinum (17.98%), Artemisia desertorum (12.32%), Ephedra przewalskii (11.91%), and Horaninowia ulicina (10.29%).
Among them Corispermum sp, Seriphidium santolinum, Artemisia desertorum and Horaninowia ulicina were the primary food sources, with Horaninowia ulicina and Salsola paulsenii noted in the diet only in summer.

Macrofossils obtained from alluvial sediments dated around 29600 [+ or -] 300 [.sup.14.C] yr BP (TO-292) at the Mayo Indian Village (MIV) site along the Stewart River in central Yukon Territory are dominated by diverse tundra herbs, including Corispermum hyssopifolium, Bupleurum americanum, Potentilla, Dryas, Papaver, several Caryophyllaceae, and shrubs (Salix, Betula glandulosa), suggesting a cold and dry tundra environment (Matthews et al., 1990).

Flour and bran are not only obtained from grasses but from other desert plants such as Agriophyllum pungens, Corispermum
mongolicum, and other chenopods, and sometimes from the seed of artemisias such as Artemisia annua.
In studies of other dune species (Ammophila breviligulata, Cakile edentula, Cirsium rhothophilum, Corispermum
hyssopifolium and Elymus canadensis), seeds of all plants required burial for successful seed germi nation (Zedler et al,, 1983; Maun and Lapierre, 1986).
