Table 1 Information about the fires included in this analysis of wildfire sites in Montana, Idaho, and Washington, USA, that burned in July and August between 2003 and 2007. The fire size was obtained from the final MTBS fire perimeter. The range of elevations, mean annual temperatures, and mean annual precipitation for sites sampled within fires is reported. Climate data was obtained from Rehfeldt (2006) and downscaled to the site level according to Rehfeldt et al. (2015)

From: Does burn severity affect plant community diversity and composition in mixed conifer forests of the United States Intermountain West one decade post fire?
