Title: Changes in Vegetation and Fuels Due to the Warm Fire on the Kaibab National Forest

Project Proposal Abstract: In 2005, the Grand Canyon Trust initiated a baseline assessment to characterize existing ecological conditions across the Kane and Two Mile ranches on the Kaibab Plateau in Northern Arizona an area totaling approximately 850,000 acres. The assessment included the installation of 150 plots across the Kaibab Plateau to characterize understory and overstory vegetation. On June 8th, 2006, a lightning strike ignited the Warm fire on the northeastern edge of the Kaibab Plateau. The fire was managed first as a wildland fire use fire and then as a wildland fire, burning a total of 24,000 ha (59,000 acres). A total of 36 plots from the 2005 Grand Canyon Trust assessment burned in the Warm fire. This proposal addresses AFP 2007-1 Task 2 and will evaluate the biological effects of a wildland fire use fire using the pre-fire data from the Grand Canyon Trust Plots and 5 years of post-fire data.
