Synergistic interactions between fire and browsing drive plant diversity in a forest understorey

Foster, Claire; Barton, Philip; Sato, Chloe; MacGregor, Chris; Lindenmayer, David B


Questions: Does browsing by large herbivores affect forest understorey diversity by modifying assemblage dominance? Does fire interact with browsing to affect forest understorey diversity? Does this interaction occur via a numerically mediated or functionally moderated pathway? Location: Booderee National Park, Jervis Bay Territory, south-eastern Australia. Methods: We tested the interactive effects of fire and browsing by native herbivores on understorey plant diversity using a randomized...[Show more]
