Bryophyte persistence following major fire in eucalypt forest of southern Australia

Pharo, E.J.; Meagher, D A; Lindenmayer, David

Description

The significance of variation in fire severity is not well understood for bryophyte species richness and composition. This is despite fire being a major factor in determining bryophyte richness and composition in temperate forests. We documented the species richness of mosses and liverworts in 42 sites of Mountain Ash (Eucalyptus regnans) forest in eastern Australia. We compared two age classes: long unburned stands and 72year old stands following a major fire in February 2009. Within these two...[Show more]
