A Modified 100-Point Frame for Vegetation InventoryTaha, 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 SagebrushSalih, 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.
