Fire intensity in 1987 experimental burns did not affect fire severity in a 2003 wildfire. Survival of Adenostoma fasciculatum was very low, regardless of fire intensity in 1987. Recruitment of Adenostoma increased, and of Ceanothus greggii decreased, with increased fire intensity in 1987. This shows a carry-over effect of fire intensity on plant recruitment across a fire cycle.
