Ecology of plant resprouting: populations to community responses in fire-prone ecosystems

Michael Lawes, Peter J Clarke

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    Resprouting has emerged as a key functional trait in plant ecology over the past decade with more than 400 papers published since 2000 (Web of Science). This special issue of Plant Ecology brings together a set of papers that advance our understanding of this functional trait, in the quest for developing a better conceptual framework for predicting community response to disturbance. This special issue highlights current research on all aspects of the effects of fire and other disturbances on plant resprouting behaviour and the importance of the persistence niche in structuring plant communities. � 2011 Springer Science+Business Media B.V.
