Second, I examined the flowering responses of replicate populations of Pityopsis graminifolia to late-thunderstorm-season fires at the edge of oak-dominated communities in Holly Springs National Forest (HSNF) in north Mississippi (in the interior hilly coastal plain) and to early-thunderstorm-season fires in longleaf pine savannas in Desoto National Forest in southeast Mississippi (in the flat outer coastal plain).
To infer the peak lightning-fire seasons in north and south Mississippi under conditions of natural fire conductivity and fuel loads, I analyzed seasonal patterns of lightning and precipitation near Holly Springs National Forest and Desoto National Forest (specifically, Abbeville and Biloxi, Mississippi, respectively).
Observations were made at two adjacent edges of each of two 100-year-old oak-hickory-shortleaf pine forests in the Little Tallahatchie Experimental Forest in north Mississippi within Holly Springs National Forest.
To examine the effects of season of clipping on flowering, 18 1 meter x 7 meters replicate large plots were established within each of two longleaf pine savannas in DeSoto National Forest (at Wolf Branch and at Sandy Creek) and 12 1 m x 7 m replicate large plots were established within each of three forest-edge populations in Holly Springs National Forest.
Because the current study is the first to examine flowering responses of this species to fire in the interior South, I do not have as much confidence in concluding that the responses in Holly Springs National Forest are representative of responses in other parts of the interior South or in other years.
