The Fireweed complex is widespread across British Columbia, wherever moisture is sufficient. In the southern interior, it occurs abundantly in the ICH zone, and also in the higher elevation and harsher environments of the ESSF and MS zones. Until now, we have included both ICH and ESSF/MS zones in a single PROBE analysis of spruce and Fireweed complex responses to manual cutting treatments. This was because we did not have adequate replication up to year 5 to carry out the analyses separately. Measurement of site 79 at Bowler Creek has allowed us to carry out separate analyses, and we can now compare results for the ICH and ESSF/MS zones to determine whether responses (or lack of responses) are similar in the two units.
