Fire and functional traits: using functional groups of birds and plants to guide management in fire-prone, heathy woodland ecosystem

Frederick Rainsford
Aim: Many dry forests and woodlands worldwide are fire-prone and support bird and plant communities shaped by fire. Changes in fire regimes, including the time between fires, have important implications for population trajectories. We studied the responses of bird and plant communities of heathy woodlands to time since the last fire, a key measure underpinning fire management, to evaluate whether current management strategies will enhance conservation of multiple taxa. Location: Otway Ranges, south-eastern Australia. Methods:...
