Description

Four species of bunchgrass (Poa secunda, Sitanion hystrix, Stipa comata, and Stipa thurberiana) were tested at two intensities for resistance to fire damage. Fire injured both Stipa species, but S. commata was the more susceptible. Most burning treatments caused heavy mortality and reduction of basal area.
