First decade plant succession following the Sundance forest fire, northern Idaho

Author(s): Peter F. Stickney
Year Published: 1986
Description:

Describes the first 10 years of vegetation development following disturbance by a holocaustic forest fire in a western redcedar-western hemlock type in the Selkirk Range. Postfire development of vegetation is represented as life-form stages and predominant cover species. Differential development of plant species established in the first postfire year appears to be the principal process operating in the early seral phase of this secondary forest succession.
