Brad Ripley, Vernon Visser, Pascal-Antoine Christin, Sally Archibald, Tarryn Martin, and Colin Osborne. 2015. Fire ecology of C3 and C4 grasses depends on evolutionary history and frequency of burning but not photosynthetic type. Ecology 96:26792691. http://dx.doi.org/10.1890/14-1495.1

Appendix A. Percentage recovery of photosynthetic aboveground biomass expressed relative to the average values of total biomass for control plants at day zero; recovery of photosynthetic biomass, canopy area, and changes to specific leaf area of burned plants recovered in the light, compared between species; and changes to reproductive biomass, recovery of aboveground biomass, and recovery of total biomass of burned plants recovered in the light, compared between species.

Fig. A1. Percent recovery of photosynthetic aboveground biomass expressed relative to the average values of total biomass for control plants at day zero. Burned and control plants are compared between lineages. Values are means and vertical bars are standard errors. n (species per lineage) = 3 or 4; n (replicates per species) = 6.


 

 

FigA2

Fig. A2. Recovery of photosynthetic biomass (a – d), canopy area (e – h) and changes to specific leaf area (i – l) of burned plants recovered in the light, compared between species. Values are means and vertical bars are standard errors. n (replicates per species) = 6.

Fig. A3. Changes to reproductive biomass (a – d), recovery of aboveground biomass (e –h) and recovery of total biomass (i – l) of burned plants recovered in the light, compared between species. Values are means and vertical bars are standard errors. n (replicates per species) = 6.
