Vegetation and fire history of a ponderosa pine-white fir forest in Crater Lake National Park


, : Vegetation and fire history of a ponderosa pine-white fir forest in Crater Lake National Park. Northwest Science 54(1): 30-46

Vegetation was sampled on 64 plots, and wedges were cut from 49 fire scars on trees, on 7.5 kmsuperscript 2 of the S. area of Crater Lake National Park, Oregon. Four habitat types with eight communities were recognized. Soil formed in alluvial parent material supports the relatively dry Abies concolor/Symphoricarpos mollis type. Pumice parent material supports A. concolor/Chimaphila umbellata, A. magnifica var. shastensis and A. concolor/Mesic Species types.
