CANOPY-STORED SEED BANKS OF ALLOCASUARINA-DISTYLA AND A-NANA IN RELATION TO TIME SINCE FIRE

Abstract:

Allocasuarina distyla is single-stemmed and fire-sensitive; A. nana resprouts multiple stems from a lignotuber following fire. Vegetative above-ground plant growth correlates with seed bank size in A. distyla better than in A. nana. There is c10 times the canopy-stored seed in A. nana 8 yr after fire than in A. distyla 9 yr after fire. The critical period to initial seed set in A. distyla is between 7-9 yr. In A. nana, this period is typically longer but appears to depend on the age of the se...
