Effects of Wildfire and Prescribed Fire on Stream Ecosystems in Central Idaho, Western Montana, and Western Oregon, 2001-2011Entry ID: USGS_FRESC_Fire_StreamEcosystems
Abstract: ABSTRACT: This record documents the fields of datasets (which are contained in Microsoft Excel spreadsheets and MS Access databases) that describe upland, riparian, and stream ecosystems in the following areas: (1) Idaho - South Fork Salmon and East Fork South Fork Salmon River drainages following the 2000 Diamond Peak Fire, before and after the 2004 Parks-Eiguren Prescribed Fire, before and after the 2006 Williams and Fitsum Prescribed Fire, before and after the 2006 and 2007 South Fork Salmon Complexes, Krassel RD-Payette NF; (2) Montana â€ Bitterroot River following the 2000 Bitterroot Valley Fire Complex, Sula RD-Bitterroot NF; (3) Oregon - 2001 Quartz Fire, Applegate RD-Rogue NF; Grayback Mtn-Siskiyou NF; 2002 Biscuit Fire, Grants Pass Resource Area-Medford BLM.
Purpose: PURPOSE: The purpose of this dataset is to quantify and compare the effects of wildfire and prescribed fire on stream and riparian ecosystems under different fire management practices: (1) prescribed fire, (2) wildfire after prescribed fire, (3) wildfire in untreated, fire-suppressed forests, and (4) wildfire in wilderness forests with a history of minimal fire suppression allowing for a fairly natural fire regime.

Quality ATTRIBUTE ACCURACY REPORT: None conducted.
LOGICAL CONSISTENCY REPORT: Joint Fire Science Program, USDA Forest Service National Fire Plan, USGS Fire Program, USGS Amphibian Research and Monitoring Initiative, Payette National Forest.
COMPLETENESS REPORT: Field methods not suitable for detection of adult Rocky Mountain Tailed Frog (Ascaphus montanus), although this life stage was occasionally observed in and along streams.
Access Constraints ACCESS CONSTRAINTS: Data will be available by request only after publication.
Use Constraints Please acknowledge the originator when using the data set as a source. For some research questions, the non-random locations of points within randomly selected cells might be an issue. Sampling dates and number of samples varied among years and this might be an issue for some research questions.
