    Web site and CD-ROM include 21 pages of text plus electronic data for 55 succession sites including color plates, tables, and figures. Provides data on quantitative postfire changes of plant species and forest vegetation components for up to the first 25 years of secondary plant succession for 55 forest sites in northern Idaho and northwestern Montana. Cover (aerial crown) and volume (aerial crown space occupied) data are presented as percent cover (m 2 /0.01 ha) and m 3 /0.01 ha to permit their direct application to the wide range of wildland management problems involving early postfire forest vegetation. These data can be applied either in terms of plant species response and development or as the development (recovery) of the major life-form components (herb, shrub, or tree) of forest vegetation. This data base incorporates extended versions of two previously published data bases. Color plates illustrate the visual change in forest succession on the 55 sites.
