Effects of dormant and growing season burning on surface fuels and potential fire behavior in northern Florida longleaf pine (Pinus palustris) flatwoods
Prescribed fire is widely used to manage fuels in high-frequency, low-severity fire regimes including pine flatwoods of the southeastern USA where prescribed burning during the growing season (the
Disrupting woody steady states in the Chaco region (Argentina): Responses to combined disturbance treatments
a b s t r a c t Vegetation states with low suitability for cattle raising ('woody states') are widespread in the Chaco region (NW Argentina). We assessed the success of roller-chopper (RR);
Interpreting Smoke Signals: Fire Ecology and Land Management for Four Federally Listed Birds
Recovery of listed species requires that land managers and research biologists work together to address the factors affecting population stability and growth. In Florida, an essential factor
Extensive clonal spread and extreme longevity in saw palmetto, a foundation clonal plant
TLDR
A novel analytical framework that integrates DNA fingerprinting and mathematical modelling to simulate growth and ages of clonal plants is introduced and it is suggested that Serenoa predominantly propagate via vegetative sprouts and 10’000‐year‐old genets may be common, while showing no evidence of clone formation by Sabal.
Fire in Protected Areas - the Effect of Protection and Importance of Fire Management
Fires are important but socially and economically unwanted disturbances of the ecosystems. They cannot be considered as a problem, they are global phenomena. Protected areas are created to protect
Florida Turkey Nest Site Selection and Success
TLDR
Habitat management that creates patches of dense shrub vegetation such as saw palmetto within an open landscape may be best for Florida wild turkey nesting habitat and success.

Restoration of Dry Prairie Using Fire and Roller Chopping
Florida’s dry prairies are rare and threatened due to suppression of natural fire regimes in these fire-dependent ecosystems. Ecological restoration of dry prairies reduces the growth of shrubs

TLDR
This study was designed to discover differences in forage production and species composition as a result of season of chopping, and found that chopping during periods of low soil moisture appeared to give best results.

TLDR
Results indicate that the apparent alternative stable state of C. drummondii dominance in tall-grass prairie is biotically maintained and driven by reductions in light, rather than resource enrichment,rather than any long-term changes in resource availability.
Shrub Invasions of North American Semiarid Grasslands
TLDR
