The Lolo National Forest habitat types are grouped into 10 Fire Groups based primarily on fire's role in forest succession. For each Fire Group, information is presented on (1) the relationship of major tree species to fire, (2) forest fuels, (3) the natural role of fire, (4) fire and plant succession. an ecological factor for forest habitat types occurring east of the Continental Divide in Montana. Forest habitat types of Montana are grouped into Fire Groups based primarily on fire's role in forest succession. For each Fire Group, information is presented on (1) the relationship of major tree species to fire, (2) fire ef-. The Fire Groups The forest habitat types of Montana have been assem- bled into 12 Fire Groups (table 1) that are defined as follows: Fire Group Zero: A miscellaneous, heterogeneous collec- tion of special habitats. In western Montana forests these sites exist as scree, forested rock, wet meadow, mountain grassland, aspen grove, and alder Size: 3MB.

Fire Group Three-Warm, moist ponderosa pine habitat types and warm, dry Douglas-fir habitat types usually dominated by ponderosa pine. Fire Group Four-Cool, dry Douglas-fir habitat types. Fire Group Five-Moist Douglas-fir habitat types. A fire group is a cluster of habitat types within a given geographic area; all habitat types in a fire group have similar presettlement fire regimes, similar response of dominant tree species to fire, and similar successional patterns. Fire groups are described to help managers understand broad patterns in the fire ecology of northern Idaho’s by: The system is based on reconnaissance and detailed sampling of approximately 1, stands. The habitat type concept of Daubenmire is used to construct a hierarchi- cal taxonomic classification of forest sites. A total of eight climax series, 46 habitat types, and 60 additional phases of habitat types are Size: 9MB.

Fire and Forest Ecology. Fire has long been an essential and natural force that has influenced the ecosystems of the Sierra Nevada. Natural and vital ecological functions such as plant regeneration, soil function, nutrient cycling, habitat revitalization, disease control, predator prey dynamics, biological diversity, and vegetation development are shaped by a natural fire regime.
