Unburned Plant Community, Death Valley NP

Detailed Description

This is a low elevation community that is unburned. It is immediately adjacent to the Calico fire perimeter (Death Valley National Park). The large amount of herbaceous plant cover (mainly red brome Bromus rubens and red-stemmed filaree Erodium cicutarium) in the understory make this extremely susceptible to burning.
