Table 1 Mean and standard error of all response variables (plant density, plant seed density, and seed density). Multivariate restricted maximum likelihood (REML) linear mixed model analysis results for response variables, with treatment (four levels; early dry, mid dry, control, and wet) as fixed effects and block as a random effect. Bold type face indicates a significant P-value (P = <0.05). Data from the abandoned Wyndham, Western Australia, Golf Course site collected 2 May 2014 (Early fire), 26 June 2014 (Mid dry season fire), 18 December 2014 (Wet season fire), and March 2015 (density responses).
