How does fire regime affect seed production and dispersal in plants? In today’s episode of Fire University, Marcus sits down with former graduate student Dr. Carolina Baruzzi and current PhD candidate David Mason, MSc to chat recent and ongoing research investigating how fire regimes affect plant investment in seed production and how wildlife responses to fire may be important for which plants colonize. Join them as they discuss plant responses to fire, the roles wildlife play in seed dispersal, and how these effects impact the outcome of burning.
