Changes in average solute concentrations of (a) Ca2+, (b) Na+, (c) Cl, (d) K+, (e) Mg2+, (f) DOC, (g) TDN, (h) NO3, (i) DON, (j) SO42−, (l) PO43−, and (m) NH4+ over time since fire (years) in streams flowing through riparian zones that burned with low-severity (open circle) and high-severity (closed circle) fire in Yosemite National Park, California, USA. Sites were sampled between 1 and 13 years after the last fire. Dotted line represents the mean value for the reference stream (±1 standard error is provided in Table 2). DOC = dissolved organic carbon; DON = dissolved organic nitrogen; TDN = total dissolved nitrogen. Error bars represent ±1 standard error
