The invaders california sun love and hate


In wet years Sahara mustard covers the ground almost 100% and can carry fire when it dries. It is a frightful thought that hyperarid desert, including sand dunes, can burn because of this weed. There have already been documented fires in the dunes west of Blythe, CA and the Pinta sands in the Cabeza Prieta Wildlife Refuge. This latter site is a remote, uninhabited, and previously pristine habitat. The fuel source of the Pinta fire was not documented, but Sahara mustard has been seen in that area as extensive stands five feet tall and too dense to walk through. Most Sonoran Desert plants cannot tolerate fire; burned areas become wastelands of nearly pure exotic weeds.
