Titre : LONG-TERM POST-BURN VEGETATION CHANGES IN SAGEBRUSH ECOSYSTEMS : CHANDLER AND LACEY SAGEBRUSH BURN MONITORING

Identification : CALZ-151

Pays : Etats Unis

Durée : May 1, 2009 à Dec 31, 2011

Domaine : Management and Control of Forest and Range Fires ; Desert and semidesert shrub land and shinnery

Partenaire : HUMBOLDT STATE UNIV ARCATA

Objectif
Justification : Sagebrush ecosystems provide important economic, recreational and agricultural benefits throughout western North America. Few research studies exist that evaluate the long-term community changes in the sagebrush ecosystem rangelands following the application of prescribed fire. Most research studies have produced papers of varying results after only a few years of post-burn data collection. Furthermore, no literature exists on the long-term vegetation dynamics following prescribed fire in the Clear Lake Hills area of Modoc County. This sagebrush series has a Western Juniper (Juniperus occidentalis) component. Objectives : The objective of this project is to monitor the long-term vegetation changes in the post-burn sagebrush ecosystem. This research will provide a nearly 30 year span of monitoring data. These data will be analyzed to determine the long-term, post-fire community changes in the sagebrush ecosystem in Modoc County, California. It will contribute to the expanding knowledge base concerning the long-term effects of using prescribed fire in the sagebrush ecosystem rangeland. The nearly thirty years of monitoring will constitute enough data to produce a manuscript to be submitted to Journal of Range Ecology and Management for publication.
