Devil's Tower National Monument
The primary objective of the research underway is to determine the effects of past and present fire regimes on the vegetative mosaic at Devil's Tower. Secondary objectives are to develop a fire history, to assess the use of biogenic opal (phytoliths) as an indicator of vegetative boundaries, and to develop a burning plan to be used in vegetation management.
