Abstract

Describes results of a study surveying herbivores on plants following wildfires in Florida sandhills. The density of grasshoppers on Carphephorus corymbosus was higher in areas that burned more frequently (5 years or less between fires) than less frequently (7 years or greater between fires). These results may indicate the occurrence of healthier plants in the areas that burn more frequently. The full article is available here http://journals.fcla.edu/flaent/article/view/59489.
