From the text (p.9) ... 'To provide a context for discussion of fire effects on animals and their habitat, this chapter described the vegetation, fire regimes, and postfire succession of several plant communities referred to in subsequent sections of this report. This description is not meant to be a complete survey of fire regimes in North America; such a survey is available in 'Effects of fire on Flora,' also part of the Rainbow Series. Instead, it provides examples of plant communities and fire regimes throughout the continent, many of them described in earlier reviews, including Wright and Bailey (1982). These communities are divided according to the geographic regions used to describe fire effects on the flora in this series: northern ecosystems; eastern ecosystems, including the Great Plains; western forests; western woodlands, shrublands, and grasslands; and subtropical ecosystems.'
