[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: From July 2001 through August 2004, we repeatedly measured midstory vegetation
for all sites. The midstory is defined as trees and shrubs (arborescent
vegetation) over 1.4 m tall and with a dbh between 25 and 99 mm. Data were
collected on four randomly selected 10m2-subplots per 0.1 hectare main plot.
Collection dates were in July 2001 (post burn), June 2003 (preburn), July 2003

Quality Data collected by the same researchers each time, but because the distribution
of the midstory vegetation was highly variable on treatments 1 and 2 and
