Wildfires on public lands in the United States are increasing in size and frequency over time. Government agency post-fire treatments often include seeding of native and nonnative plant species; however, the effectiveness of post-fire seeding has been questioned, and while the importance of using native species has been emphasized, more research on the effects of native seeding post-fire is needed. We sought to understand what characteristics of vegetation communities distinguished burned and unburned areas, and if environmental characteristics of sites would predictably alter community composition.
