This study is centred on Quercus robur, Q. pyrenaica and Q. ilex that have a distribution area covering all Europe. Fire is a frequent ecological factor in many ecosystems, especially in those with Mediterranean climates. Our working hypothesis is that...

This paper describes the effects of temperature and simple or multiple dormancy-breaking treatments (potassium nitrate, surgical treatment, gibberellic acid (GA3), after-ripening at 45°C and nitrogen dioxide gas) on germination of five endemic and...

Fire has been shown to stimulate seed germination in a number of fire-prone ecosystems, mainly in Mediterranean type shrublands and, though not exclusively, in hardseeded species. Stimulation by heat, or by chemical constituents of charred wood and...

Soil seed banks that persist after a fire are important in fire-prone habitats as they minimise the risk of decline or local extinction in plants, should the fire-free interval be less than the primary juvenile periods of the species. In two common...

Savannas are a major terrestrial biome, comprising of grasses with the C4 photosynthetic pathway and trees with the C3 type. This mixed grass-tree biome rapidly appeared on the ecological stage 8 million years ago with the near-synchronous expansion of...

Boreal forests are highly susceptible to wildfire, and post-fire changes in soil temperature and moisture have the potential to transform large areas of the landscape from a net sink to a net source of carbon (C). Understanding the ecological controls...
