Experiment 015 - Effect of Burning patterns on Vegetation in the Fish Lake Burn Compartments

The purpose of this experiment is to see what effect burning patterns have on vegetation. The survey was conducted in 12 different compartments. These are Cedar Creek burn compartments 1(101), 1A(201), 3(103), 4(104), 5(105), 7(107), 8(108), 9N(209), 9S(309), 10(110), 11(111) and 13(113) NOTE (Current burn unit identifiers). Four transects, 50 meters long and 25 meters apart, were established in each compartment. Six quadrats were marked along each transect at 0, 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50 meters. The quadrats are 1 meter by 0.5 meters. Sections were defined by dividing the transects in half and taking the area between transects. This creates six 25 meter by 25 meter sections.
