Description

From the text ... 'Objectives of the study 1) To compare pre— and postburn plant communities. 2) To determine vegetal succession patterns after fires of different intensities. 3) To relate successional patterns to natural and artificial regeneration after fires of different intensities. To achieve these objectives studies were initiated on plant succession, natural and artificial regeneration, and general effects of fire on the site in association with another study on fire intensity and fire manipulation.'
