Title

Data for pre-fire and post-fire surface fuel loading in a Sierra Nevada mixed-conifer forest introduced fire on surface fuels in a Sierra Nevada mixed-conifer forest

Description

This data set includes measurements of the 116 fuel transects that were used in Cansler et al. (in review). The research was conducted in the Yosemite Forest Dynamics Plot, Yosemite National Park, California, USA (Lutz et al. 2012).

File Cansler_et_al_YFDP_Density_By_Species_By_Decay_Class.csv

This file contains the wood density values used for the calculations.

File Cansler_et_al_YFDP_2011_CWD_DWD_input.xlsx

File Cansler_et_al_YFDP_2014_CWD_DWD_input.xlsx

These two files with identical field definitions compare the pre-fire (2011) tally of coarse woody debris (CWD) with the post-fire (2014) tally. The two files have identical field definitions.

File Cansler_et_al_YFDP_2011_LitterDuff_input.xlsx

File Cansler_et_al_YFDP_2014_LitterDuff_input.xlsx

Two files with identical field definitions comparing the pre-fire (2011) tally of litter and duff (CWD) with the post-fire (2014) tally.

File Cansler_et_al_YFDP_Fuels_to_Mass_Full.csv

File Cansler_et_al_YFDP_Fuels_to_Mass_Paired.csv

These two files with identical field definitions compare the pre-fire and post-fire fuel loading in each fuel strata. The file Cansler_et_al_Fuels_to_Mass_Full.csv contains all the data, and the file Cansler_et_al_Fuels_to_Mass_Paired.csv contains the data that was used for the pre-fire to post-fire spatial comparisons.
