Effects of Time Since Fire on Heath Floristics at Wilson's Promontory, Southern Australia

RP Russell and RF Parsons

Australian Journal of Botany 26(1) 53 - 61
Published: 1978


Five stands of heath vegetation were located which were similar in all respects except that their age since last being burnt ranged from 1 to 21 years. There were no major floristic differences associated with age since fire. Species richness declined from about 60 species from 1 to 10 years since fire down to 49 species at 21 years. The essentially self-replacing nature of the vegetation after fire is due to the high incidence of rootstock regeneration.
