Abstract:
Our objective was to determine whether remnant/unburned sagebrush patches contribute to sagebrush recovery in burned areas surrounding them. We quantified seed rain in relation to patches of sagebrush that were either unburned remnant or had been planted in the first year or so after wildfire. We conducted a seed trapping experiment across 5 different sites in southwestern Oregon and southeastern Idaho during two winters (2018/2019 and 2019/2020) to determine seed transport distances. We paired this with a seedling recruitment study on the Soda wildfire where we mapped distances between remnants and seedlings. This data publication includes all seed trapping data from this study which includes seed trap counts, plant characteristics of remnant plants in the patch, location of patches, traps, and plants, and germination tests conducted on trapped seeds.
