Plant Adaptations to Fire

A wide range of plant species have evolved a remarkable array of adaptations that enable individual plants to survive or grow after being subject to fire. A diverse assortment of these fire adapted (or, pyrophytic) plant species can be found growing in wildlands found all across New England, frequently in areas where burning has occurred sometime in the past. This class will survey a taxonomically and ecologically diverse assortment of plant species and examine some of the adaptations that allow these plants to either survive or grow after experiencing fire.

Please note: We do not make video or audio recordings of classes or programs available after the fact, because we believe education is interactive, with instructors and students building a community and culture of learning. Some programs may be recorded strictly for instructor-training purposes. Please visit this page to review this and other FAQs about our policies.
