Title: Ecological Restoration in Northern Arizona Ponderosa Pine Forests: Effects on Native and Introduced Plant Species

Author: * Springer, J.D.

Subject: Ecological Restoration, Ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa), Natives

Abstract: Memories of the worst drought and fire season in recent history are still vivid. There is an ongoing and unprecedented bark beetle outbreak that is killing numerous trees in northern Arizona's forests. Forest restoration projects attempt to regain forest health by lowering tree density and reintroducing fire. These actions enhance habitat for many plant and animal species and decrease the risk of catastrophic wildfire.
