From the text..'Twenty, 62-acre study sites were located within a creosote-tarbush habitat on McGregor Range, Fort Bliss in south central New Mexico. Prescribed fires were applied to 10 of the study sites during June 1995. Reptile and terrestrial arthropod populations will be compared between the 10 burned and 10 unburned study sites for two summers after the burn, 1995 and 1996.'
