Resprouting and mortality of juvenile eucalypts in an Australian savanna: impacts of fire season and annual sorghum

Werner, Patricia; Franklin, Donald C.

Description

In northern Australian savannas, canopy tree species often have juvenile tree banks that are composed mainly of small individuals of indeterminate age that have resprouted repeatedly after fire. Little is known about their demography. We report the initial responses (mortality, topkill and resprouting type) of 3133 marked juvenile eucalypts to set fires of different seasons (early dry season, late dry season, wet season, unburnt) in a 32400m2 field experiment. Fire treatments were repeated in...[Show more]
