Mechanisms Enabling a Fire Sensitive Plant to Survive Frequent Fires in South-West Australian Eucalypt Forests
Pages: 26-40
DOI: 10.4996/fireecology.1201026

A fire sensitive plant, Banksia quercifolia R.Br., that often occurs as thickets embedded in forest landscapes in south-west Australia was exposed to repeated broad-scale fires at short intervals.  Fire severity and patchiness was mapped using satellite imagery and the response of the B. quercifolia population monitored.  Over the study period, the mean interval of fire in the landscape in which B. quercifolia occurred was 1.7 yr-almost half the juvenile period of the species-and the landscape fire frequency was six fires per decade.  [Read More]
