Post-Fire Recovery of Eucalypt-Dominated Vegetation Communities in the Sydney Basin, Australia
Pages: 53-79
DOI: 10.4996/fireecology.1203053

Monitoring landscape-scale vegetation responses of resprouter species to wildfire is helpful in explaining post-wildfire recovery. Several previous Australian studies have investigated the temporal recovery of eucalypt obligate-seeder communities (which have a significantly delayed revegetation response), but little research has been conducted for resprouter communities. In this study, we found that eucalypt dominated resprouter communities in Sydney’s drinking water supply catchments (SDWC) have a rapid post-wildfire response and recovery rate.  [Read More]
