Vegetation and fuels data collected in 2010 and 2011 from historical emergency stabilization & rehabilitation seedings (1990 – 2003) on BLM lands within the Great BasinEntry ID: USGS_FRESC_FireChronosequenceDB
Abstract: ABSTRACT: Data are contained in a Microsoft Access database consisting of 27 data tables. Tables provided include emergency stabilization and rehabilitation (ESR) projects sampled, study plot characteristics, and sampled vegetation and fuels data. All data are from Bureau of Land Management (BLM) federal lands within the Great Basin region of the intermountain west.
Purpose: PURPOSE: Data were collected to evaluate effectiveness and outcomes of post-fire ESR seedings 8–21 years after seeding.
