Local environmental covariates are important for predicting fire history from tree stem diameters

Lazzari, Juliana; Yoon, Hwan-Jin; Keith, David; Driscoll, Don


In fire-prone landscapes, knowing when vegetation was last burnt is important for understanding how species respond to fire and to develop effective fire management strategies. However, fire history is often incomplete or non-existent. We developed a fire-age prediction model for two mallee woodland tree species in southern Australia. The models were based on stem diameters from ∼1172 individuals surveyed along 87 transects. Time since fire accounted for the greatest proportion of the explained...[Show more]
