Ecology and disturbance

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.


Seed dormancy & postfire germination

Serotiny (including precocity)

Bark thickness


Defences traits (herbivory)

Traits: data & methods
