Flammable biomes dominated by eucalypts originated at the Cretaceous-Palaeogene boundary

Crisp, Michael; Burrows, Geoffrey E.; Cook, Lynette Gai; Thornhill, Andrew; Bowman, David M.J.S.

Description

Fire is a major modifier of communities, but the evolutionary origins of its prevalent role in shaping current biomes are uncertain. Australia is among the most fire-prone continents, with most of the landmass occupied by the fire-dependent sclerophyll an
