Full description

Athrotaxis cupressoides is an iconic Tasmanian palaeoendemic conifer that is vulnerable to fire. A survey
of three populations burnt by severe fire in 2016, conducted 1 year post-fire, found 33% of stems were still alive, with
many surviving stems suffering some canopy scorch. We re-surveyed these populations to quantify delayed mortality,
resprouting, and presence of juveniles, and to determine whether fire impacts can be reliably assessed after 1 year. We
applied three measures of fire severity: canopy scorched, canopy consumed, and the minimum burnt twig diameter of
neighbouring shrubs.
