Ecological Impacts of Fire Trails on Plant Assemblages in Edge Habitat Adjacent to Trails
Pages: 95-119
DOI: 10.4996/fireecology.130395119

Fire trails provide access into vegetation for controlled burns in fire-prone regions of the world. We examined the ecological impacts of fire trails on plant assemblages in edge habitat adjacent to trails in eucalypt woodlands of World Heritage Blue Mountains National Park, southeastern Australia. We found that understory plant species richness, total plant density, and leaf mass per area (LMA) were significantly higher in fire-trail edge habitat than in the understory of interior woodland habitat without fire trails.  [Read More]
