Title: Herbs and brush on California red fir regeneration sites: a species and frequency sampling

Author: Gordon, Donald T.; Bowen, Eugene E.

Date: 1978

Source: Res. Note PSW-RN-329. Berkeley, CA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Southwest Forest and Range Experiment Station. 10 p

Station ID: RN-PSW-329

Description: In a sampling of 32 logged areas in red fir forests of northern California, 58 plant species were found. Species corresponded with less than one-fifth of the 93 species reported in an earlier study of the virgin forest. Sampling of uncut areas adjacent to cuttings does not seem useful for predicting the earlier successional vegetation that will appear when the areas are logged.

Keywords: red fir; Abies magnifica; cutover forests; regeneration; ground cover; competition; plant succession; vegetation sampling
