A widespread conversion of sagebrush-dominated plant communities to post-fire communities dominated by herbaceous annual species has occurred in the Great Basin of North America's Intermountain West during the last century, mainly driven by invasions of alien species and a subsequent increase in fire frequency. Little experimental data, however, are available on the potential consequences of wildfire and post-fire plant community alteration on key ecosystem functions such as ecosystem hydrology… CONTINUE READING
