IntroductionPinus is a diverse genus of trees widely distributed throughout the Northern Hemisphere. Understanding pine life history is critical to both conservation and fire management.ObjectivesHere I lay out the different pathways of pine life history adaptation and a brief overview of pine evolution and the very significant role that fire has played.ResultsPinus originated ~150 Ma in the mid-Mesozoic Era and radiated across the northern continent of Laurasia during the Cretaceous Period… Expand
