Bromus tectorum cover (a and b), Centaurea stoebe cover (c and d), and Cirsium spp. cover (e) graphed against predictor variables identified in NPMR analysis for sites in Montana, Idaho, and Washington, USA, that burned in July and August between 2003 and 2007. Abbreviations for predictor variables are: sprp = spring precipitation (mm), winp = winter precipitation (mm), dnbr = burn burn severity index, mmin = mean minimum temperature of the coldest month (10×°C), map = mean annual precipitation (mm). See Table 7 for model evaluations. The model surface is displayed in a red-to-black gradient: lighter colors indicate higher values and darker colors indicate lower values on the 3-dimensional surface. The vertical lines at the corners of some graphs are included to assist with reading the value on the y-axis and with seeing the 3-dimensional relationship. Areas colored in gray did not have enough data for model prediction
