Percent trees scarred (a) and fire intervals (b) at 13 sites across the south-central US prairie–forest border region during the period 1636 to 2015 C.E. Symbols correspond to individual sites; solid grey line corresponds to the decadal mean plotted through time. Fire Extent Index (FEI, c) and its 11-year moving average (11-yr MA). The FEI is calculated by multiplying the number of study sites recording by the mean percentage of trees recording fire. Site codes are listed in Table 1
