Description

1) Assessment of BLM seeding effectiveness in mid-elevation burn where pre-burn plant communities were dominated by blackbrush, Joshua trees, and creosote.

2) Patterns driving fire recovery at the landscape scale:

  • Link initial vegetation, environment, and soils
  • Are there patterns that can be gleaned that can then be applied to management prescriptions?
