Ecology and disturbance in terrestrial ecosystems

1. Fire history

2. Fire regime: climate, fuel, and humans

3. Fire traits


By fire traits we mean plant traits that enhance fitness (i.e., that have an adaptive value) under recurrent fires.


Postfire germination


Bark thickness


Defences traits (herbivory)
