Response of Eucalyptus-dominated Savanna to Frequent Fires : Lessons from Munmarlary , 1973 – 1996

  title={Response of Eucalyptus-dominated Savanna to Frequent Fires : Lessons from Munmarlary , 1973 – 1996},
  author={Jeremy Russell-Smith and Peter J. Whitehead and G. D. Cook and JAMES L. HOARE},
We assess a replicated fire plot experiment undertaken between 1973 and 1996 in two Eucalyptus-dominated savanna vegetation formations (open forest, woodland), at Munmarlary, in monsoonal northern Australia. Four treatments, each with three replicates, were imposed on each vegetation type: annual early dry-season burning; annual late dryseason burning; biennial early dry-season burning; and unburned controls. Treatments were imposed faithfully, with noted exceptions, on 1-ha plots. Fire… CONTINUE READING
