Effects of spring headfires and backfires on tallgrass prairie



Effects of spring headfires and backfires on tallgrass prairie



Journal of Range Management 43(3): 209-212



Responses of tallgrass prairie vegetation (dominated by Andropogon gerardii, Panicum virgatum, Sorghastrum nutans and Schizachyrium scoparium) to late spring headfires and backfires were compared on a moderately stocked (2.4 animal unit months/ha) shallow prairie range site 15 km SW of Stillwater, Oklahoma. Plots were oriented with the prevailing wind direction.
