Table 2 Data on the 13 prescribed fires, from 2006 to 2010, at Archbold Biological Station, Venus, Florida, USA, where the effect of prescribed fire on resprouting Florida vegetation was examined. Weather data were collected adjacent to fire. These include minimum relative humidity (Min RH; %) and wind speed (km h−1). Dominant vegetation included scrubby flatwoods, flatwoods, sandhill, and sand pine scrub

From: Are fire temperatures and residence times good predictors of survival and regrowth for resprouters in Florida, USA, scrub?
