• A Modified 100-Point Frame for Vegetation Inventory

      Taha, F. K.; Fisser, H. G.; Ries, R. E. (Society for Range Management, 1983-01-01)
      A modified point frame was developed for vegetation sampling on a short-grass prairie ecosystem in eastern Wyoming. This sampling device facilitates the recording of 100 point hits within a 30 × 60 cm quadrat at a given sampling location. This technique provides quantitative data very sensitive to general ground cover or vegetative changes over time within each quadrat.
    • Water Repellency of Soils under Burned Sagebrush

      Salih, M. S. A.; Taha, F. K.; Payne, G. F. (Society for Range Management, 1973-09-01)
      Burning of sagebrush produces water repellency in soils. Maximum repellency occurs at soil temperatures between 1400 and 1800 degrees F. The field test indicated that repellency is produced as a result of the burning of the sagebrush leaf mulch under the shrub rather than the burning of the live plant material.
