AbstractYields of understory vegetation increased from 223 lb./acre, including 50 lb. of perennial grasses, to 981 lb., including 193 lb. of perennial grasses, after juniper overstory was removed in northern Arizona. Successional trends did not follow a smooth sequence; many areas remained in an annual forb-half-shrub stage for several years.
