Table 1 Summary statistics for field plots (n = 47), which includes fire severity, based on the Relative differenced Normalized Burn Ratio (RdNBR), and the top four forest structure or composition variables explaining observed variability in Rim Fire RdNBR (see Methods section)

From: How does forest recovery following moderate-severity fire influence effects of subsequent wildfire in mixed-conifer forests?
