AbstractResearches post-fire growth responses of 16 resprouting species in Florida scrub following a prescribed burn. For all species, the number of resprouting stems increased in response to fire. However, post fire growth rates varied significantly by species. The article is accessible without a subscription at the following link: http://fireecology.org/journal/abstract/?abstract=131
