Effects of spring headfires and backfires on tallgrass prairie


Journal of Range Management 43(3): 209-212
Effects of spring headfires and backfires on tallgrass prairie
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.
