Title: Plant Communities in Selected Longleaf Pine Landscapes on the Catahoula Ranger District, Kisatchie National Forest, Louisiana

Author: Haywood, James D.; Boyer, William D.; Harris, Finis L.;

Date: 1998

Source: Proceedings of the Ninth Biennial Southern Silvilcultural Research Conference, Feb 15-27, Clemson, SC

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: In Grant Parish, Louisiana, increases in overstory basal area, canopy cover, and development of understory woody plants reduced productivity of herbaceous plants in longleaf pine (Pinus palustris Mill.) stands that were managed with fire. Still, the herbaceous plant community can reestablish itself on properly managed upland longleaf pine sites in the West Gulf Region. Management efforts were considered most successful where pinehill bluestem [Schizachyrium scoparium var. divergens (Hack.) Gould] is the dominant herbaceous plant. The lack of oak (Quercus spp.) and hickory (Carya spp.) regeneration on more mesic sites was worrisome. Use of nested subplots was the best method for monitoring herbaceous vegetation.
