Table 2 Mean density, basal diameter, height, and biomass values (± SE) for all standing woody stems ≥1.37 m tall on six 20 m2 plots located within the boundaries of the June 1997 Magitchlie Creek Experimental Fire study area, Innoko National Wildlife Refuge, Alaska, USA. Dashes (--) indicate that data was not collected
