'Control burning of brush is now a common practice in range improvement in California. Frequently, before burning, some or all of the brush is mashed down with mechanical equipment or killed by chemical sprays. To learn how destructive such fires are to wildlife, a study was made to measure the survival of animals, either surrounded by fire or in various environments within such a fire. The study took place at the San Joaquin Experimental Range, O'Neals, California...' © Society for Range Management. Abstract reproduced by permission.
