The Wildfire Chronosequence Project is a joint initiative of the Bushfire CRC, the University of Tasmania (School of Plant Science) and Forestry Tasmania. The project incorporates a set of permanent research plots in forest regrowing following past stand-replacing disturbance events (wildfire or timber harvesting). There are six disturbance treatments in total, each represented by a 50 x 50 m plot (with 100 m external buffer) on a northerly to westerly aspect and another on a southerly to easterly aspect. These encompass regrowth forest following wildfire's in 1898, 1934 and 1966/67, as well as equivalent plots in forest that has not experienced wildfire for over 150 years (old-growth) and forest regenerating following clearfell, burn and sow silviculture in 1966 and 2000. Six of the sites are within the Warra Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) site with the remaining six sites within an adjacent area of State Forest designated as the Southern Forests Experimental Forest Landscape.
From 2005 To 2007
