Ecology Photo of the Month

The Morgan Fire of 2013 burned nearly 3,000 acres primarily on the east and south sides of Mount Diablo. In the spring of 2014 Nomad Ecology conducted a post-fire study of fire-following annual plants. In several of their plots fire poppy (Papaver californicum) was observed - an exciting find! Fire poppies haven’t been seen on Mount Diablo since after the 1977 fire, nearly 40 years ago.

    Morgan Fire Study - Annual Fire Followers

    Nomad Ecology senior botanist Heath Bartosh was featured as the front page story in the San Francisco Chronicle (5/14/14) discussing the recovery of vegetation on Mount Diablo resulting from the 2013 Morgan Fire.

    In May of 2014 Nomad Ecology conducted the first year of a post-fire study assessing species composition and changes in annual plant diversity over a three year period in this post-fire environment. This study will help in understanding how ephemeral fire-following plant diversity changes over time and expresses itself in various areas of the mountain in six different vegetation types. In total data will be recorded on 1,250 1x1 meter square quads. Nomad Ecology is thankful to California State Parks who has provided funding for the first two years of this three year study.
