Abstract Forest ecosystems in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California are greatly influenced by wildfire as a natural disturbance, and increased fire severity and drought occurrence may alter the course of post-fire recovery in these ecosystems. We examined effects of fire severity, post-fire climate, and topographic factors on short-term (  405 ha) between 1999 and 2006 were examined. According to the modeling results provided by ordinary least squares (OLS) regressions including spatial… CONTINUE READING
