Description

A seasonal trend was found in ether extractive content of chamise leaves and stems. A direct relationship between extractive content and heat content was also found. However, there is also a seasonal variation in the heat content of both the fuel remaining after extraction and the extractives themselves. The importance of these variations in terms of flammability needs to be determined.
