Description: In 1997, The Nature Conservancy initiated a large-scale prescribed fire management study on approximately 2,500 acres of their Chilton Creek property located in Shannon and Carter counties, Missouri. Since the spring of 1998, five management units, of roughly 500 acres each, have been burned in the dormant season to simulate a range of fire regimes that vary from annual fires to fire free intervals that average from 1 to 4 years. The intent is to simulate high frequency, low intensity fires that occurred historically in the watershed and study fire effects on the biota. The overstory was inventoried on half-acre permanent plots located in the different burn treatments. Survival and height growth of the advance reproduction was recorded on smaller plots nested within the half acre plots. In this paper, we present the effects of the different burning regimes on the advance reproduction.
