Fire regimes in mountain ash forests: evidence from forest age structure,extinction models and wildlife habitat.

Lindenmayer, David; Gill, Malcolm A; McCarthy, Michael

Description

The mean interval between tree-killing fires in mountain ash (Eucalyptus regnans F. Muell.) forest was inferred from information on the age structure of unlogged forest, the prevalence of mountain ash trees in the landscape, and on the abundance of live and dead hollow-bearing trees. The analyses were based on models of the local extinction and recolonization of forest patches by mountain ash trees and of the development of hollow-bearing trees in response to time since fire. The results of the...[Show more]
