Pyrophytic Properties of the Larch Larix gmelinii in Terms of Life Strategies

Pyrophytic Properties of the Larch Larix gmelinii in Terms of Life Strategies The pyrophytic properties of the larch Larix gmelinii (Rupr.) Rupr. growing in the northern taiga of central Siberia have been studied. It has been found that, although the trees are highly combustible and fire resistance of tree stands is low, the species is highly pyrophytic, which allows it to retain its geographic range. At early stages of postfire successions, the larch exhibits characteristics of pyrogenic explerent and is subject to r-selection. When forest restoration is close to completion, the species passes into the patient state and acquires properties subject to K-selection. Russian Journal of Ecology Springer Journals
