Early Posture Forest Succession in the Heterogeneous Teton Landscape

(p.235) Chapter 11 Early Posture Forest Succession in the Heterogeneous Teton Landscape
After the Fires

Kathleen M. Doyle

Yale University Press

This chapter discusses the early post-fire forest succession in the heterogeneous Teton landscape. Geologic substrates within the study region include Precambrian rocks of the Teton Range, plus a variety of Paleozoic and Mesozoic sedimentary rocks, Tertiary rhyolitic tuff, Quaternary glacial debris, and other unsorted deposits such as landslide debris and colluvium. Glacial deposits originated from two separate regions which include the Teton Range to the west and the Yellowstone area to the north. The pre-fire relative density and relative basal area of each tree species were estimated for each stand by counting and measuring the diameters of trees greater than 10 cm dbh in and adjacent to the 226 plots. Trees that survived the fire, as well as standing and fallen dead trees killed by the fire, were measured.
