    Description

    Little was known about the ecology, impacts, effects, and history of fire related to many
    plants and communities within White Sands Missile Range. I began by identifying the known
    aspects and the gaps in knowledge for White Sands Missile Range. I analyzed existing data
    available for the Installation taken from the Integrated Training and Area Management
    (ITAM) program for 1988 to 1999. Burn plots were identified at 34 sites with fires occurring
    sometime within that 11 yr span. Selected plant species were analyzed to identify the response
    to fire including change in frequency, cover, and structure. Analysis of data indicated varied
    responses to fire and identified a need for long term monitoring to account for natural
    variability.
