Abstract

Examines plant community composition after 8-9 years of fire-free intervals in wet pine savannas in southern Mississippi. Many herbaceous species that had become less frequent during fire-free intervals became more common after fire was restored. However, Carphephorus pseudoliatris appeared to benefit from the fire-free interval.
