Factors Determining Low Mediterranean Ecosystems Resilience to Fire: The Case of Pinus Halepensis Forests [link]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
Factors acting as drivers of low resilience to fire in Pinus halepensis ecosystems are being examined. The commonest factor seems to be fire interval. From the several time windows examined, that of, the shortest one ever reported in this type of communities (3 years only) seemed to be the most crucial. From the plant species previously existing on the site woody and herbaceous obligate seeders are mainly affected by this factor. Other factors, affecting mainly pine regeneration, are the abundance of Quercus coccifera individuals in the regenerating community and the high percentage of limestone outcrops. As an example of a landscape approach to the problem of evaluating resilience to fire, the case of Sounion Peninsula National Park is presented.
