The Teakettle Ecosystem Experiment in the southern Sierra Nevada is using thinning and prescribed fire to recreate historical stand conditions. As part of Teakettle we assessed pretreatment diversity and density of the soil arthropod community in 1998 and 2000. We determined the density and diversity of soil microarthropods among treatment plots, the influence of patch type (closed canopy, canopy gaps, Ceanothus sp., and coarse woody debris [CWD]), and established baseline pretreatment data… CONTINUE READING
