ABSTRACT The Colorado National Monument (COLM), on the northeastern edge of the Uncompahgre Plateau, supports a persistent Pinon (Pinus edulis Engelm.) — juniper (Juniperus osteosperma (Torr.) Little) woodland, which has not been disturbed by large stand-replacing fires since modern fire records began. We examined the fire history of large (> 100 ha) stand-replacing fires, documented tree population structures, and characterized tree density, quadratic mean diameter (QMD), relative composition… CONTINUE READING
