Predicting post-disturbance succession

A conceptual model of the primary components that influence plant succession following disturbance or vegetation management treatment. Consideration of key characteristics of these primary components substantially increases the ability to predict outcomes following disturbance and vegetation management (Miller et al. 2013, 2014, and 2015).

Primary components are the basis for a series of key questions to be addressed when evaluating site resilience to treatment applications, evaluating resistance to invasive annual grasses, and predicting post-treatment responses.
