Changing dominance of key plant species across a Mediterranean climate region: Implications for fuel types and future fire regimes

Gibson, Rebecca; Bradstock, Ross A.; Penman, T.D.; Keith, David A.; Driscoll, Don

Description

Herbaceous and woody plants represent different fuel types in flammable ecosystems, due to contrasting patterns of growth and flammability in response to productivity (moisture availability). However, other factors, such as soil type, fire regimes and competitive interactions may also influence the relative composition of herbaceous and woody plants within a community. The Mediterranean climate region of south eastern Australia is transitional between two contrasting fuel systems; herbaceous...[Show more]
