  • Abstract Ecosystems perturbed from their natural disturbance regimes are more vulnerable to establishment and dominance of exotic plant species. Restoration efforts that reintroduce fire have achieved mixed success in reducing the abundance of exotic plants. The responses of many native species to fire are well known; fire-adapted species respond directly (heat and smoke cue germination) and indirectly (post-fire environment benefits seedling survivorship and growth) to fire. However, the… CONTINUE READING
