Table 2: ANOVA of the effects of soil depth and microsite on maximum temperatures recorded during a controlled burn in sand pine scrub at Ocala National Forest, Florida. Temperatures were recorded with copper-constantan thermocouples placed at the soil surface and at 2 cm depth, and in open and vegetated microsites. Data were rank-transformed prior to the ANOVA.
