Effects of fire on the primary productivity of grasslands in Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda



Effects of fire on the primary productivity of grasslands in Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda



Rangelands: a resource under siege Proceedings of the 2nd International Rangeland Congress, Adelaide, Australia, 13-18 May 1984: 599-600



Burning experiments in the Hyparrhenia/Themeda grasslands of Uganda's Queen Elizabeth Park over 10 years showed that late dry season burns significantly increased seedling flush, flowering, seed production, growth and DM production of palatable species, whereas early dry season fires and grazing reduced the volume of palatable species and, as in unburnt plots, allowed regeneration of shrubs.
