Description: The vegetation, fire regime, and Fire Regime Condition Class descriptions in this paper apply broadly to the Mojave Desert, Colorado Plateau, and southern Great Basin of western North America. More detail on these topics, including estimated percentages within each condition class, is provided for the Mojave-Colorado Plateau ecotone spanning southern Nevada, the Arizona Strip northwest of the Grand Canyon, and southwestern Utah, including the area within the boundaries of the Southern Utah Fuel Management Demonstration Project (Hood and others). Fire Regime Condition Classes (FRCC) are an interagency, standardized tool for describing the natural range of variation in vegetation, fuels, and fire regime characteristics for a particular biogeographic region or vegetation type. They summarize how past land use and land management actions (or inactions) may have caused the FRCC to change.

Keywords: fire regime condition class, disturbance, fire ecology, fuel treatment
