Title: Fires and forest succession in the Bitterroot Mountains of northern Idaho
Author: Larsen, J. A.;

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)
Description: Foresters have recently begun to seek a more intimate knowledge of the natural, successional stages by which forests regain terrain lost by extensive fires or other pronounced denuding agencies. Studies in this field lead to a closer understanding of the factors which control the distribution, composition and density of the present forest, the silvical requirements of the various species which compose the existing forest and of the soil building or soil deteriorating influences which are operative after large fires. It is the author's privilege in this paper to record certain observations on forest succession in the Bitterroot Mountains in northern Idaho, gathered in the course of several years of forest research in that region. This is the territory lying north of the Salmon river between the crest of the Bitterroot divide and the Columbia river plateau.
