Case Study: The Ecology of Mixed-Severity Fire in Mountain Ash Forests

Berry, Laurence; Sitters, Holly


The eucalypt forests of southeast Australia are among the most flammable ecosystems worldwide. Most of the forest in the region is dominated by a single overstory eucalypt species. Here we describe stands of mountain ash (Eucalyptus regnans), which is the tallest flowering plant species in the world, at heights approaching 100 m.
