Wind Cave National Park
The objective of this study is to carry out an ecological analysis of vegetation occurring under the ponderosa pine canopy in Wind Cave National Park and to define the relationship between this vegetation and fire. The N. P. S. has expressed speciaI interest in areas which have been invaded by ponderosa pine since the national policy of fire suppression was established near the turn of the century.
