Table 1 Weather conditions during burn treatment application by month, treatment, and longleaf pine seedling size class in South Carolina, USA, in 2013. There were no significant interactions among any of the independent variables in the model; the same superscript letter within a column and effect indicates no significant difference; HB = high-intensity burn; LB = low-intensity burn treatment

From: Fire effects on a fire-adapted species: response of grass stage longleaf pine seedlings to experimental burning
