    Early succession was followed in a 2.5-ha gap created by a severe wind storm in a 5.5-ha fragment of eastern North American deciduous forest. Understory vegetation cover by species, light, soil moisture, and levels of several major nutrients were measured in 1 x 2 m census plots 3 years prior...

    To mitigate erosion after fire, land managers often seed non-native grasses onto burned slopes. To assess how post-fire seeding affects plant recovery, we compared areas that were either unseeded or artificially seeded after high-intensity fire in a dry Abies grandis (Dougl.) Lindl. forest in...
