Altered Fire Regimes Affect Landscape Patterns of Plant Succession in the Foothills and Mountains of Southern California

Abstract

In the southern California foothills and mountains, pronounced and complex topographic gradients support fire regimes that vary over short distances. We used LANDIS, a spatially explicit landscape model of disturbance and plant succession, to examine the resilience of dominant plant species, representing different disturbance response strategies, to the… (More)
