• The Effects of Fire on Seed Germination

      Cushwa, C. T.; Martin, R. E.; Miller, R. L. (Society for Range Management, 1968-07-01)
      Fire is characteristically used in the pineywoods of the Southeast to produce repetitive abundant stands of native legumes. However, results are frequently erratic and unpredictable. Seed germination results following simulated fire conditions are presented. Results show dry heat ineffective in increasing germination, whereas moist heat greatly increased both germination rate and total germination of some species of seed.
