Summary
Abstract: The data are from the 1999 Fontainebleau wildfire that burned into an area that
had previously been treated with 3 prescribed fires (1988, 1992, and 1998) in
the Mississippi Sandhill Crane National Wildlife Refuge. Nine plots were
established in both the treated area and an adjacent untreated area. Data
collected describe stand conditions and fire severity at each plot.

The data were collected to assess the effect of repeated prescribed burn
treatments on stand conditions and subsequent wildfire severity.

Quality Error checks have been completed. Since only one treatment area was affected
by the Fontainebleau fire, plots are pseudo-replicates. The treatment boundary
was defined by a railroad which may have augmented the effect of the treatment
on the behavior of the wildfire. We deemed this unlikely, however, since ... View entire text
