Table 1 Analyses performed and variables considered when examining effects of fire on perennial herbs and shrubs between 1986 and 2015 on McCorkhill and Yackelup forest sites, Western Australia. Plot (Fire treatment) and Sample event (Fire treatment) indicate nesting of plots and sample event within fire treatments

From: Fine-scale temporal turnover of jarrah forest understory vegetation assemblages is independent of fire regime
