with Nate Emery, UCSB
Monday, August 25, 2014

Wildfire is a common disturbance in many of California's ecosystems. Over time, plant species have evolved traits that enable them to persevere through wildfires. In fact, there are some species that actually require fires to disperse seeds and regenerate. Over a pint, Nate Emery will walk us through several ecosystems in California and explain how plant species respond to wildfires.
