Unburnt habitat patches are critical for survival and in situ population recovery in a small mammal after fire

Shaw, Robyn; James, Alex; Tuft, Katherine; Legge, Sarah; Cary, Geoffrey J.; Peakall, Rod; Banks, Samuel


Fire drives animal population dynamics across many ecosystems. Yet, we still lack an understanding of how most species recover from fire and the effects of fire severity and patchiness on recovery processes. This information is crucial for fire‐mediated biodiversity conservation, particularly as fire regimes change globally. We conducted an experiment to test whether post‐fire recovery is driven by in situ survival or recolonisation, and to determine whether this varies with fires of...[Show more]
