SPECIES: Spiraea douglasii | Douglas' Spirea
IMMEDIATE FIRE EFFECT ON PLANT : Douglas' spirea is probably topkilled by most fires and killed by severe fires. DISCUSSION AND QUALIFICATION OF FIRE EFFECT : NO-ENTRY PLANT RESPONSE TO FIRE : The literature contains few reports describing Douglas' spirea after fire. Because of its sprouting ability, it probably survives most fires. In central British Columbia Douglas' spirea was present with shinyleaf spirea (Spiraea betulifolia var. lucida) in seral Engelmann spruce (Picea engelmannii)-fir (Abies spp.) stands. Relative density of the Spiraea spp. in plots 4 to 22 years after fire was 4 percent; in plots 37 to 75 years after fire, it was 9 percent [13]. In British Columbia McMinn [38] studied a site in a western hemlock/Sitka spruce forest burned in 1861 and again in 1931. By 1948 Douglas' spirea had formed dense thickets with salmonberry and thimbleberry. DISCUSSION AND QUALIFICATION OF PLANT RESPONSE : NO-ENTRY FIRE MANAGEMENT CONSIDERATIONS : NO-ENTRY
