Abstract

Fire ecology studies in eastern hardwood forests generally use traditional, plot-based inventory methods and focus on sprouting stems to detect changes in vegetative composition and structure. Fire intensity often is not quantified or even subjectively classified and, if quantified, is not used in subsequent analysis. Consequently, reported responses of hardwood regeneration to prescribed fires vary widely.
