The Effect of Fire on Chaparral Seed Germination [E]
How Does Cigarette Smoke Affect Crickets' chirping? [E]
Determine if wildland fire would cause invasive species to flourish during the first few years after the fire due to the lack of competition and an abundance of nutrients, though over time the burned areas would return to their original state, with native plants taking over and replacing non-natives. [E] [E]
Test the effects of fire on the mineral content of soil. [E]
