Landscape-Scale Vegetation Change following Fire in Point Reyes, California, USA
Pages: 114-128
DOI: 10.4996/fireecology.0702114

Vegetation in the Point Reyes region is characterized by a complex mosaic of grassland, shrub, and forest plant communities, and by high levels of plant diversity. Although large fires are relatively rare on the coast of California north of San Francisco Bay, they are important in determining the distributions of plant communities at the landscape scale.  [Read More]
