    Description

    In recent decades Northern Nevada has experienced a dramatic increase in cheatgrass (Bromus tectorum). As a result, wildfire frequency and size has increased. The objective of this project was to examine natural vegetation recovery and trend following 1985 wildfires. Density and cover measurements determined a high but fluctuating occurrence of cheatgrass and minimal change of perennial grass and shrubs. Loamy 8-10 ecological sites have a greater potential for consistently producing more cheatgrass plants and cover than loamy 5-8 and droughty loam sites.
