Variation in fire response traits of plants in mountainous plant communities of south-eastern Australia
In fire-prone ecosystems, plant species exhibit a range of traits which allow them to persist under certain fire regimes. Two critical traits are resprouting and regeneration from seed. Resprouters and seeders can coexist within plant communities, but their relative proportion varies. This research investigated variation in patterns of community composition, in terms of fire response traits, across a mountainous region of south-eastern Australia. The relative importance of fire regimes,...[Show more]
