Spatial analysis and modelling of fire severity and vegetation recovery on and around Mt Cooke, south-western Australia
MetadataShow full item record
The South Western Australian Floristic Region (SWAFR) is an area with high biodiversity and species endemism. Numerous granite outcrops within the area provide specialised ecosystems for these endemic plants that are under threat by changes to the fire regime. This study reviews a fire on Mt Cooke in 2003. Using remote sensing and GIS, the fire is studied in relation to vegetation and fire indices to assess the fire severity and studies if the topography affected the fire severity. The vegetation recovery is monitored for ten years post-fire to assess recovery rates.

Lamont, Byron; He, Tianhua; Yan, Z. (2018)Fire has shaped the evolution of many plant traits in fire-prone environments: fire-resistant tissues with heat-insulated meristems, post-fire resprouting or fire-killed but regenerating from stored seeds, fire-stimulated ...
Lamont, Byron; He, Tianhua (2017)Fire as a major evolutionary force has been disputed because it is considered to lack supporting evidence. If a trait has evolved in response to selection by fire then the environment of the plant must have been fire-prone ...
