In the article “Restoration of native perennials in a California annual grassland after prescribed spring burning and solarization” by Andrew B. Moyes, Martha S. Witter, and John A. Gamon, that appeared in the December 2005 issue of Restoration Ecology on pages 659–666, 1Figure 1 should be as below:


Figure 1. Map of study site showing the prescribed burn boundary (white line) and study plot locations. Each white bar represents a row of eight, 1-m2 plots (bars not to scale), and blocks contained either two or three adjacent rows of plots. Burn and control areas each contained 5 blocks with twelve plot rows (96 plots). An example of a block with two plot rows is shown on the left. End plots (shown in gray) were sampled for seedling density, percent cover, and soil moisture studies. Six central plots in each row were systematically assigned solarization and seeding treatments. Abbreviations are: S = solarized, A =A. californica seeded, N =N. pulchra seeded, and O = no seed added. In blocks with three rows of plots (see map), the third row is positioned to the right of the rows shown, and has the same treatment pattern as the row on the left. The gray triangles represent locations where soil samples were taken for the seed bank study (the two samples taken next to each plot were combined). The four 3 × 12 m areas (not shown to scale) circled by the dotted white line were given burn and solarization treatment combinations (filled rectangles were solarized) and were used for transplant studies.
