Title: Fire history of southwestern mixed conifer: A case study

Author: Dieterich, J.H.

Subject: Fire history, Ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa), White Mountains

Abstract: Prior to the year 1900, fires burned through a mixed conifer stand located in the South Fork of Thomas Creek, in the White Mountains of Arizona, at an interval of 22 years. Small fires burned on the area at more frequent intervals. In the absence of these periodic fires, species diversity remains high but stand composition and structure appears to be changing.
