The Mediterranean Basin is a fire-prone area. Pinus halepensis Mill. is a naturally growing conifer which is frequently used for reforestation and restoration as it displays some degree of adaption to fire. One of the traits conferring tolerance to fire is the frequent presence of serotinous cones that are thought to protect seeds from fire damage. We checked for the physiological responses of seeds to different intensities of fire and related them to the degree of serotiny of the cones… CONTINUE READING
