The role of fire as a mineralizing agent in a Sierran coniferous forest


The role of fire as an agent for mineralizing forest floor organic matter was investigated in a Sierra Nevada sequoia-mixed conifer forest. Soil chemical properties were determined in a series of small paired plots on and adjacent to burns done by the National Park Service in their control burn program. Total nitrogen, carbon, and cation exchange capacity… (More)
