Merged Fuel WeightsEntry ID: SFP_mergedfuelweights
Abstract: We evaluated how several management schemes change fuel conditions, vegetation,
and insect populations in three upland forest types across four sites (loblolly
pine, mixed pine (2 sites), and a young longleaf pine plantation) that
represent different stages in the restoration of longleaf pine habitat. JFSP
May 2001 through August 2004 fuel data for all sites.
Fuel data in seven fuel classes (live foliage; 1-hr, 10-hr, and 100-hr time-lag
dead fuels; live stems less than 10 cm in diameter, post-burn needlecast over a
6 week period; and post-burn regrowth over a 6 week period) were collected to
determine degree of fuel consumption in prescribed burns and the amount of fuel
recovery between prescribed burns.

Quality Due to sampling variation, the live fuels, 1-hr and 10-hr time-lag dead fuels
are the most accurate. Data collected by the same researchers each time, is
consistent, and of good quality.
