Publication Series: Journal/Magazine Article (JRNL)

Description: We used a multi-year data set from the 2002 Rodeo-Chediski Fire to detect post-fire trends in plant community response in burned ponderosa pine forests. Within the burn perimeter, we examined the effects of pre-fire fuels treatments on post-fire vegetation by comparing paired treated and untreated sites on the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest.We sampled these paired sites in 2004, 2005 and 2011.

Keywords: exotic species, high-severity fire, Pinus ponderosa, succession, wildfire
