    Description

    Maintenance of vegetation is a central goal of watershed management. When prescribed burning of chaparral is included in management practice, then it is important for managers to understand and use the natural chaparral fire regime to maximize vegetation response. Variations from the natural fire regime in intensity, frequency, season, and environmental conditions at the time of burning can all have substantial effects. These factors interact differently with the species that comprise chaparral. This paper focusses on the variation in responses of different groups of chaparral species to changes in fire regime.
