Fire Effects

Is burning effective at decreasing fuel loading in herbaceous/grass? Data from Fort Richardson ISBC suggests no difference. Note: ISBC 2006 samples were not complete aboveground biomass but only the biomass thought to be available to burn on that particular day.

ISBC transects T1-T3. Fuel loading of herbaceous fuels (kg/m^2) 2006-2008 (Blue, Red, Green).
