Master of Science (MS)
The research with which this thesis is concerned will, hopefully, provide additional data to develop a proscribed fire management program with the following objectives: reduce wildfire conflagration hazards which exist because of unnatural fuel accumulation, eliminate or reduce exotic plants, invigorate stagnating prairies through reduction of litter, open up dense pine thickets, reduce forest insect problems, create firebreaks, develop a natural vegetative mosaic by preventing unnatural pine encroachment into prairies, and re-establishing pine savannahs (Shilts 1976).
