Effects of fire on the mulga (Acacia aneura) community



Effects of fire on the mulga (Acacia aneura) community



Annual Report, Mulga Research Centre, Australia (3): 1-19



A study was made of plots in A. aneura communities near Menangina, Western Australia, from 1974-77, a period of intense bushfires. Results suggested that A. aneura is adapted to occasional fire intense enough to crack hard seeds. Low intensity fires may kill the plants but fail to stimulate seed to germinate. Germination appears to be stimulated by wet conditions.
