scape and consider the stages during oak life history where fire could potentially be used as a tool to enhance oak regeneration. Finally, we provide some guidance for management considerations in the field. The Oak–Fire Hypothesis: Issues in Contemporary Forests The oak–fire hypothesis suggests that oak forests require periodic fire disturbances for their successful regeneration and conservation (Abrams 1992). This hypothesis stems from several lines of evidence. Oaks have physiological and… CONTINUE READING
