    Introduction. Edaphic factors are known to strongly influence the structure and composition of vegetation, especially in semi‐arid ecosystems where soil surface and profile characteristics can affect canopy growth and morphology via moisture and nutrient availability (Nelson et al. , Pennington et al. ).However, the increasing frequency and severity of disturbances such as wildfire. However, a study on Wyoming big sagebrush shrub-steppe in central and southeast Montana stands where median time since fire was 22 years (ranging from 4 to 67 years) found no Wyoming big sagebrush canopy cover recovery for 17 of the 24 sites, and the oldest burn was only 8% recovered (Cooper et al. ).

    Big sagebrush. Artemisia This genus of several hundred plants belonging to the aster family derives from Artemis, the Greek goddess of hunting who befriended wild animals and plants.. tridentata Latin for “three teeth,” referring to the three lobes on the leaf.. By Lee Lamb Photo by Pat Munday. This story is featured in Montana Outdoors July-August issue. Fire plays a large role in structuring sagebrush ecosystems; however, we have little knowledge of how vegetation changes with time as succession proceeds from immediate postfire to mature stands. We sampled at 38 sites in southwest Montana dominated by 3 subspecies of big sagebrush (Artemisia tridentata Nutt.). At each site we subjectively located 1 sample plot representing the burned area and.

    for forest-mountain big sagebrush shrubland ecotones of southwest Montana. They calculated pre MFI values of 41, 45, and 74 years for moist, dry, and hot-dry habitats. These estimates were adjusted to 35 to 40 years based on the assumption of probable missing fire evidence.

ssp. vaseyana [Rydb.] Beetle) cover occurred in slightly more than 30 years, however the minimal data for Wyoming big sagebrush (A. ssp. wyomingensis Beetle & Young), indicated a much longer recovery period (Lesica et al. Big sagebrush is sensitive to fire, does not re-sprout post-fire (Schultz ), and recovery of big sagebrush can take a long time: average of years, but the variability across sites and.
