Flammability of Native Understory Species in Pine Flatwood and Hardwood Hammock Ecosystems and Implications for the Wildland-Urban Interface.Entry ID: USDA_FS_flammabilitynativeunderstoryspecies
Abstract: The data set contains morphological and flammability data on 10 shrub species
commonly growing in pine flatwoods and hardwood hammocks. Morphological data
include height, width, leaf area, dried-weight by fuel class, peak heat
release, total heat release, time to ignition, combustion, consumption, and
sustainability. The purpose of the study was to determine the flammability of
commonly occurring shrubs in pine flatwoods and hardwood hammocks to asses
their contribution to fire spread through those forest communities.
