The factors affecting the establishment of wiregrass in longleaf pine ecosystems were investigated. Establishment was greater in burned, irrigated plots than in plots that were only burned or were burned and the soil disturbed. In unirrigated plots, establishment was greater in burned and disturbed sites than in sites that were only burned or only disturbed.
