Abstract
We used a large data set collected as part of a wildlife habitat study at the Blodgett Forest Research Station in the Sierra
Nevada of California to assess the in¯uence of management practices on vascular plant diversity in the mixed conifer forest. In
addition to the existing data, we conducted botanical inventories in 32 plots (0.28 ha in size) from ®ve different silvicultural
regimes in 1997. Based on these inventories, understory species richness normalized to a total area sampled of 1.13 ha was
