Abstract

While burning effects did not persist through time, rein - Restoring Native Perennial Grasses by stituting burning at appropriate intervals would be feasible Changing Grazing Practices in Central given the abundance of grassy fuel present and positive Coastal California response of native grasses to burning (Packard and Mutel Carlene Henneman (corresponding author: Point Blue Con- 1997).
