Do post-fire fuel treatments and annual grass interact to affect fire regimes in the Great Basin?

View report.

These study results provide managers with knowledge of 1) the effects of post-fire fuel treatments on
plant community trajectories and subsequent fire regimes across climate and environmental
gradients, and 2) the effects of grazing on perennial bunchgrass establishment after post-fire
seeding, and 3) the use of burn severity indices in rangelands. Results will provide insight into
the most effective use of limited fiscal and labor resources and contribute to maintaining
sustainable rangelands that are resilient to fires and resistant to annual grass invasion.
