Description

From the text:'The, prescribed burning was not equally effective on all plots in the two study areas. As a result, the soil chemistry after burning varied quite a bit among the eight plots at each location so that not every plot exhibited the increases or decreases represented by the means presented and discussed above. Furthermore, chemical analyses of soil samples collected during the second year after burning revealed that soil chemistry was similar to the preā€”burn condition (Langston 1981).'
