Northern Arizona, USA, post-wildfire avian data: western bluebird detection/non-detection and banding data

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
Western bluebird (Sialia mexicana) population data were collected in northern Arizona, USA, following two wildfires (Hochderferr Fire, Horseshoe Fire) that occurred in May and June 1996. This is a data subset consisting of 8 years of bird data collection post-wildfire (1999-2006) and 3 years of vegetation data (2002, 2005, 2006), and is part of a larger long-term data set.

Post-fire field observations across the 2007 Egley Fire in central Oregon (1st Edition)

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
This data publication contains field observations taken in 2008 at 350 plots within the extent of the 2007 Egley Fire in central Oregon. Plots were located as paired sites in areas that had been treated and untreated prior to the 2007 Egley Fire. Field observations include a suite of vegetation, soil, fuel, and surface cover characteristics.

Within-stand spatial distribution of ponderosa pine mortality caused by the mountain pine beetle in the Colorado Front Range

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
This data publication includes data collected in support of a study to examine the small scale, within stand, spatially-referenced ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) tree mortality caused by the mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae) in a Colorado Front Range site.

Mountain pine beetle-caused mortality in thinned and unthinned ponderosa pine stands in the Black Hills, USA

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
This data publication includes data collected in support of a study to evaluate whether stand density reductions in ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) stands in the Black Hills National Forest of South Dakota and Wyoming resulted in reduced tree mortality levels caused by the mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae) (Negron et al. 2017). Data were collected in the summer of 2014 in 21 pairs of commercially thinned and unthinned stands.

Lick Creek Demonstration-Research Forest: Data and photo archive of 25-year fire and cutting effects on vegetation and fuels

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
This data publication contains vegetation, fuels, and repeat photopoint data for the Lick Creek Demonstration-Research Forest Commercial Thinning + prescribed fire and Retention Shelterwood + prescribed fire study areas in western Montana. Pretreatment data were collected in 1991. The Commercial Thinning and Retention Shelterwood project areas are each stand-alone studies located in different areas and data should not be combined.

Tree-ring growth and stable-carbon isotope response data to forest restoration treatments in ponderosa pine forests of the Lick Creek Demonstration-Research Forest, Bitterroot National Forest, Montana, USA

Datasets Posted on: December 30, 2020
This data publication includes the data used in "Forest restoration treatments in a ponderosa pine forest enhance physiological activity and growth under climatic stress" by Tepley et al. (2020).

Native and non-native understory vegetation responses to restoration treatments in a dry conifer forest over 23 years

Publications Posted on: December 11, 2020
Restoration of fire-prone forests is a common practice intended to increase resilience to wildfire, drought, and bark beetles. However, the long-term effects of restoration treatments on understory species, particularly nonnative species, are poorly understood.

Upcoming: Tree regeneration following wildfires in ponderosa pine forests

Events Posted on: December 07, 2020
In this webinar, Paula Fornwalt will discuss a recent project that examined post-fire tree regeneration in ponderosa pine forests of Arizona, Colorado, Wyoming, and South Dakota.

Habitat and growth of ponderosa pine seedlings 11-16 years after fire

Science Spotlights Posted on: November 02, 2020
Ponderosa pine seedling establishment can be constrained following especially large, high-severity wildfires. Young seedlings face high mortality levels in the first few years and remain vulnerable to the next fire until they are taller. Understanding attributes associated with the growth of naturally regenerating seedlings that survive 10+ years postfire is useful in developing post-fire management strategies.
