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

Fire is an important factor in determining plant community composition and distribution. This study quantifies landscape-scale vegetation change following a large fire at Point Reyes National Seashore, California, USA. 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]

Fire History and Forest Structure along an Elevational Gradient in the Southern Cascade Range, Oregon, USA
Pages: 1-15
DOI: 10.4996/fireecology.1301001

We examined stand structure, demography, and fire history using tree cores and fire scar data across an approximately 7000-hectare study area over an elevational gradient in the southern Cascade Range, Oregon, USA. Our plots were located in mountain hemlock (Tsuga mertensiana [Bong.] Carr), red fir (Abies magnifica A. Murr.), lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta Loudon), and mixed conifer forest types.
