Introduction. Optimal management of ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) forest communities hinges on an adequate understanding of wildfire effects on forest structure and effects of stand-replacing fires on herbaceous communities are well documented (e.g.

Although much is known about the interface between fire and ponderosa pine growth and stand health, we know little about the effects of fire on tree defenses against bark beetles.

This research will provide insight into the variability in resin defenses among ponderosa pines and the effects fire severity on resin chemistry of ponderosa pine. Project Title: Effects of fuels treatments and wildfire on understory species and fuels in the ponderosa pine zone of the Colorado Front Range Project Location: Burned, treated, and unburned/untreated ponderosa pine and Douglas-fir forests of the South Platte and Pike Ranger Districts, Pike National Forest, Colorado Principal Investigators.

Ponderosa Pine (PPN) Ponderosa Pine, Jeffrey Pine, Douglas Fir Vegetation Structure-- Tree spacing in ponderosa pine stands varies from open patchy to extremely close.

On high quality sites, virgin stands may be m ( ft) high, with diameters from m ( ft) (Harlow and Harrar ). Wildfire Lesson Plans identify biotic and abiotic factors in a Ponderosa Pine ecosystem through a video and slideshow; identify and describe a Ponderosa Pine and its ecosystem through a reading; create a web of biotic and abiotic factors within a Ponderosa Pine ecosystem; and discuss their opinion of a healthy vs.

unhealthy Ponderosa Pine. The ecological effects of wildfire suppression policies instituted in have also varied with vegetation type. In low-elevation ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) and dry Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) forests, average fire intervals have historically ranged from 5 to 20 years, and low to medium intensity fires were common (Arno   The Hayman Fire burned with mixed severity acr ha of montane Colorado forest, including pre-existing plots that were originally measured for understory plant composition and cover in We examined the influence of the Hayman Fire on exotic plants by remeasuring these plots annually from to We found that (1) exotic richness and Cited by: Although the Ponderosa Pine Zone has many forested areas, the produc-tivity of ponderosa pine and Douglas-fir is poor on most sites.

Because of the prominence of grass-lands, cattle grazing is the primary form of agriculture in this zone. The ponderosa Pine and Bunchgrass zones are particularily important for early spring range for Size: 1MB.

Wildfire. Last week, New Mexico’s famous Los Alamos National Laboratory, home of the atomic bomb, was shut down when a wildfire exploded from 2, acres to 49, acres over 24 hours, forcing the evacuation of the town of Los Alamos.

Hood and colleagues looked at the effect of raking litter and duff away from ponderosa and Jeffrey pine. • Lodgepole pine’s lifecycle usually starts and ends with a crown fire. • Lodgepole pine is not Ponderosa pine. Stands aren’t unnaturally dense and frequent fires not part of their ecology.

• MPB are a natural part of the ecosystem, help lower risk of crown fire and help reset the system. • Effects of MPB don’t last forever. Effects of Repeated Fires Previous fires can influence the behavior subsequent wildfires.

In many cases, previous fires have been shown to reduce the spread and severity of subsequent wildfires on the landscape, thereby serving as a natural fuel treatment.

A wildfire, wildland fire or rural fire is an uncontrolled fire in an area of combustible vegetation occurring in rural areas. Depending on the type of vegetation present, a wildfire can also be classified more specifically as a brush fire, bushfire (in Australia), desert fire, forest fire, grass fire, hill fire, peat fire, vegetation fire, or veld fire.

This book provides the first comprehensive scientific summary of the actual response of the Yellowstone ecosystem to the n by experts in wildlife biology, ecosystem science, landscape ecology, and forest science, the book shows not only that many things changed after the fires (for ecological components of the system are interactive.

Restoring forest structure and process stabilizes forest carbon in wildfire-prone southwestern ponderosa pine forests. Hurteau MD, Liang S, Martin KL, North MP, Koch GW, Hungate BA. Changing climate and a legacy of fire-exclusion have increased the probability of high-severity wildfire, leading to an increased risk of forest carbon loss in Cited by: Year Published: Phenology patterns indicate recovery trajectories of ponderosa pine forests after high-severity fires.

Post-fire recovery trajectories in ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Laws.) forests of the US Southwest are increasingly shifting away from pre-burn vegetation communities. (insects and diseases) order fire effects after prescribed burning. e) Use tree growth and mortality information to improve existing fire effects models.

f) Determine the influence of season and 5-year interval of burn on growth of ponderosa pine. Background: While some fire dependant ecosystems, such as the longleaf-pine ecosystems in the.

We conducted laboratory and greenhouse experiments to determine whether charcoal derived from the ponderosa pine/Douglas-fir ecosystem may influence soil solution chemistry and growth of Koeleria macrantha, a perennial grass that thrives after fire.

montane forests where pine-oak, mixed-conifer, and ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) dominate the upper vegetative zones. Depending on the size of burn severity patches, these mosaics can fragment habitats, create edge effects, and change vegetative structure and composition.
