Description

From the introduction ... 'As a result of a 15,000-acre man-caused conflagration in north-central New Mexico and a previous data base prior to the fire, it was possible to examine delayed mortality as well as recovery of ponderosa pine stands two growing seasons after a fire. Factors examined included previous fire history, stand density of living trees after the fire, crown damage, and competition of herbaceous vegetation.'
