Abstract

Mapping the individual trees ≥10 cm diameter in four 50 m x 50 m plots in the tall, wet Eucalyptus obliqua dominated forest in southern Tasmania revealed aspects of the fire history of this forest which had not been discernible from the large-scale overview of these plots. In particular, we found that a second fire had occurred in part of one of the four plots 72 years prior to the start of the survey, contradicting a previous assessment that had concluded that the area was uniformly burnt by an earlier fire 108 years before the survey began.
