Early spring and late fall fires are the least harmful to perennial grasses, although small plants and those with coarse stems are more tolerant of fire than large plants and those with leafy stems.

Cheatgrass can be suppressed by burning in early summer, but the set-back is only temporary and perennials. Role and use of fire in sagebrush-grass and pinyon-juniper plant communities.

[]   Wildfire has played an important role in structuring pinyon-juniper woodlands, with different fire regimes historically present in the three pinyon-juniper woodland types described in Chapter 2.

Fires are described in terms of their severity, which is determined by the fire’s effect on vegetation, and is usually defined in terms of survival. Pinyon-juniper woodland in Mesa Verde National Park.

Archaeological data and ethnographic accounts testify of the importance of resources available in the pinyon-juniper woodland to native peoples since the early Holocene. Food, shelter, raw material for tool construction, tinder, and preferred settlement location are a few of these.

Although early evidence is sometimes inconclusive, information from more recent periods argue for increasing.

The rather intense speciation of the genus Art ernisia suggests that this genus has been evolving in the Great Basin for thousands of years and was always an important part of all cold desert plant communities between the pinyon-juniper woodland and the salt desert vegetation.

Pinyon-juniper woodland, also spelled Piñon-juniper woodland, is a vegetation type of Western United States higher elevation deserts, characterized by being an open forest dominated by low, bushy, evergreen junipers (Juniperus osteosperma, Juniperus californica, Juniperus grandis), pinyon pines (Pinus monophylla, Pinus edulis), and their associates which vary from region to region.

Thirteen to fifteen years after a crown fire in pinyon-juniper in Grand Canyon National Park, Stansbury cliffrose was observed in unburned areas, but few plants were present in burned areas. Densities of Stansbury cliffrose greater than 2 feet ( m) in height averaged 5 plants per acre (burned) and 44 plants per acre (unburned).

Description [from the text] Fire in pinyon-juniper and southwestern chaparral communities is of interest for at least two reasons: the historical role of fire, especially with respect to maintaining grassland vegetation free from encroachment of trees and shrubs; and the use of prescribed fire as a management tool in these communities to increase herbage production for livestock, improve.

A State-of-the-Art Curl-leaf mountain mahogany (Cercocarpus ledifolius) is a widespread species in Nevada, occurring on mountain slopes spanning a wide elevational range, from the sagebrush and pinyon-juniper vegetation zones into the mountain shrub communities that border mixed conifer and even subalpine ecosystems (Tueller, ).The species plays an important role in biogeochemical cycles, since its roots can.

in Gottfried et al. Wild and prescribed fire are major disturbance processes in the Intermountain West. Changes in fire regimes had resulted in large changes in plant community struture and community response can be highly variable to fire. This project examines the response of plant communities to fire, juniper remova, and to what degree fire regimes have changed across the sagebrush biome.

Some postfire annuals with dormant seeds use heat or chemical cues from charred wood to synchronize their germination with the postfire environment. We report that wood smoke and polar extracts of wood smoke, but not the ash of burned wood, contain potent cue(s) that stimulate germination in the postfire annual plant,Nicotiana attenuata.

We examined the responses of seeds from six populations. Abstract. Nicotiana attenuata is a native tobacco that is commonly found usually one growing season after fires in the blackbrush, sagebrush and pinyon-juniper forests of the Great Basin desert of North America.

This plant also occurs in isolated dry washes and roadsides for many consecutive seasons. Postfire annuals are thought to synchronize their germination from the seed bank with the.
