Fuel Moisture Differences in a Mixed Native and Non-Native Grassland: Implications for Fire Regimes
Pages: 73-87
DOI: 10.4996/fireecology.1201073

Non-native plants have far-reaching effects on many terrestrial ecosystems.  There are several examples of non-native species altering fire regimes, either by increasing or decreasing the potential intensity and severity of fires.  To investigate this phenomenon, we sampled fuel moisture content of four native grass species (Festuca californica Vasey, Danthonia californica Bol., Elymus glaucus Buckley, and Bromus carinatus Hook. & Arn.) and four non-native grass species (Phalaris aquatica L., Cynosurus echinatus L., Arrhenatherum elatius [L.] J. Presl & C. Presl, and Anthoxanthum odoratum L.) in northern California grasslands across the 2012 growing season.  [Read More]
