    Description

    In 2000, the Jasper fire in the Black Hills, SD, created a mosaic of burned and unburned patches of different sizes within the contiguous ponderosa pine forest. To study the spatial regeneration of ponderosa pine seedlings and the ecological gradients existing between burned and unburned areas two years after fire, we used a transect approach. We demonstrated that seedling establishment was prolific within the peripheral part of the burned areas due to the presence of seed sources close by, the seedbed conditions, and the relatively low competitive pressure. This transect study provides information to consider when managing forests after fire.
