Disturbance impacts on understory plant communities of the Colorado Front Range


Fornwalt, Paula J. 2009. Disturbance impacts on understory plant communities of the Colorado Front Range. Fort Collins, CO: Colorado State University. 195 p. Dissertation.

Pinus ponderosa - Pseudotsuga menziesii (ponderosa pine - Douglas-fir) forests of the Colorado Front Range have experienced a range of disturbances since they were settled by European-Americans approximately 150 years ago, including settlement-era logging and domestic grazing, and more recently, wildfire. In this dissertation, I explored the impacts of these disturbances on understory plant communities.

Keywords: understory, ponderosa pine, Pinus ponderosa, Douglas-fir, Pseudotsuga menziesii, Colorado Front Range
