Assessing sustainability of nontimber forest product extractions: how fire affects sustainability

Assessing sustainability of nontimber forest product extractions: how fire affects sustainability

Biodiversity and Conservation 14(14): 3537-3563

Sustainable use of nontimber forest products (NTFPs) can be affected by levels of extractions as well as by other anthropogenic influences such as fire and grazing. We examined the effects of fire on the demography of Phyllanthus emblica, an important NTFP in the forests of Biligiri Rangan Hills, India. We then assessed demographic responses to the combined effects of fire and current fruit harvesting patterns.
