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.

In a test of the relative effects of backfires and headfires on Longleaf Pine seedlings, 5 pairs of plots were selected and one of each pair was burned with a headfire and the other with a backfire. The seedlings were about 3 years old with root c...

Results indicated that backfires consistently burn slower,...
