Vegetation responses to season of fire in an aseasonal, fire-prone fynbos shrubland
Season of fire has marked effects on floristic composition in fire-prone Mediterranean-climate shrublands. In these winter-rainfall systems, summer-autumn fires lead to optimal recruitment of overstorey proteoid shrubs ...
Historical fire regimes in a poorly understood, fire-prone ecosystem: eastern coastal fynbos
(CSIRO Publishing, 2013)
Wecharacterised the historical fire regime (1900–2010) in eastern coastal fynbos shrublands, which occur in a poorly studied part of the Cape Floral Kingdom (CFK). Natural (lightning-ignited) fires dominated the fire regime. ...
