Description: Belt transect and planar intercept sampling were used to characterize the vegetation in two management compartments of the Piedmont National Wildlife Refuge that have been prescription burned every fourth or fifth winter since 1964 and one that has remained unburned. These fires drastically reduced plant community stature but did not alter species composition. Expressions of species frequency, density and importance were derived and compared. Results are discussed from a wildlife standpoint.
