Viability of seeds of Eucalyptus obliqua and Leptospermum juniperinum from capsules subjected to a crown fire

Australian Forestry 49(1): 28-35

Viability of seeds of Eucalyptus obliqua and Leptospermum juniperinum from capsules subjected to a crown fire

Germination tests on seeds from capsules of E. obliqua and L. juniperinum subjected to a crown fire in Victoria in 1983 suggested that one-third of the estimated viable seeds survived. The thickness of the capsule walls was much less than that of the bark of adjacent stems on which cambium was destroyed. Low m.c. of seeds and capsules and the arrangement of capsules in dense clusters may contribute to seed survival.
