    Description

    Single wide-angle and stereo photographs display a range of forest ecosystems conditions and fuel loadings in montane subtropical forests of the Sierra Madre del Sur and temperate forests and montane shrubland of the northern Sierra Madre Oriental of Mexico. Each group of photographs includes inventory information summarizing overstory vegetation composition and structure, and biomass of understory, woody material, and litter and duff. This photo series is designed to help users to appraise fuel and vegetation conditions for fire management in forests of Mexico.
