Classifying the fire-responses of plants: How reliable are species-level classifications?

Vivian, Lyndsey; Doherty, Michael Damien; Cary, Geoffrey


Plant species in fire-prone environments possess specific traits which allow them to survive fire. Species are commonly classified according to whether they survive fire and resprout or whether they are killed by fire and regenerate from seed. However, different populations of the same species have been shown to vary in their responses. Therefore, the classification of a species into a single category based on fire-response traits may not necessarily be representative of every population under...[Show more]
