Season and interval of burning and cattle exclusion in the southern Blue Mountains, Oregon: Understory vegetation attributes

Metadata Updated: December 3, 2020

These data document understory vegetation cover, richness and regeneration tree counts for a prescribed burning study with unburned controls on the Malheur National Forest in the southern Blue Mountains of Oregon. The original prescribed fires were conducted in the fall of 1997 and spring of 1998 and were repeated at two intervals, five and fifteen years. Five year interval reburns have been repeated three times (four burns total) and the fifteen year interval a single time (two burns total). Data include vegetation conditions prior to and following the last reburns and include understory vegetation cover; graminoid (grass and sedge) cover as well as leafing and flowering culm height, and flowering culm count data; shrub cover; conifer regeneration count data; presence/absence of all vascular species; and plant functional group information, descriptions and associated species.
