Little evidence for fire-adapted plant traits in Mediterranean climate regions

  
Trends in Plant Science, Vol. 16, No. 2. (20 February 2011), pp. 69-76, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.tplants.2010.10.007

Abstract

As climate change increases vegetation combustibility, humans are impacted by wildfires through loss of lives and property, leading to an increased emphasis on prescribed burning practices to reduce hazards. A key and pervading concept accepted by most environmental managers is that combustible ecosystems have traditionally burnt because plants are fire adapted. In this opinion article, we explore the concept of plant traits adapted to fire in Mediterranean climates. In the light of major threats to biodiversity conservation, we recommend caution in ...

 

Impact of fungal pathogens in natural forest ecosystems: a focus on eucalypts

  
In Microorganisms in Plant Conservation and Biodiversity (2002), pp. 285-306, https://doi.org/10.1007/0-306-48099-9_11

Abstract

[Excerpt: Conclusions] Natural forest ecosystems have many indigenous pathogens associated with them, but genetic and age diversity of the host community prevents disease epidemics. This is the situation in undisturbed eucalypt forests in Australia. Disturbed ecosystems and plantations, however, are more susceptible to outbreaks because of a reduction in both genetic and age diversity and because of increased external stress. Observations and records of eucalypt pathogens and diseases in Australia are increasing. In addition, many new diseases are emerging on exotic eucalypt ...

 

Post-fire germination: The effect of smoke on seeds of selected species from the central Mediterranean basin

  
Forest Ecology and Management, Vol. 221, No. 1-3. (January 2006), pp. 306-312, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.foreco.2005.10.005

Abstract

In regions with a Mediterranean-type climate wildfires are a frequent occurrence: in such environments fire tolerant/favoured species are frequently encountered. In the Mediterranean basin, many species of fire prone habitats are resprouters while others are known to germinate after fire. Fire causes an enhancement of seed germination in many species from fire prone habitats in the other regions with a Mediterranean-type vegetation such as Western Australia, California and South Africa. Seeds of a number of these species are stimulated to germinate ...

Meta-information Database (INRMM-MiD).
This database integrates a dedicated meta-information database in CiteULike (the CiteULike INRMM Group) with the meta-information available in Google Scholar, CrossRef and DataCite. The Altmetric database with Article-Level Metrics is also harvested. Part of the provided semantic content (machine-readable) is made even human-readable thanks to the DCMI Dublin Core viewer. Digital preservation of the meta-information indexed within the INRMM-MiD publication records is implemented thanks to the Internet Archive.

Please, be aware that the indexed meta-information entirely relies on voluntary work and constitutes a quite incomplete and not homogeneous work-in-progress.
INRMM-MiD was experimentally established by the Maieutike Research Initiative in 2008 and then improved with the help of several volunteers (with a major technical upgrade in 2011). This new integrated interface is operational since 2014.
