Abstract

The effect of burn interval on forest structure was assessed in loblolly and shortleaf pine forests. More frequent burning resulted in decreased graminoid and composite ground cover and midstory height, but not density or basal area of saplings. Lowest diversity of sapling species was found in plots burned every 3 years.
