Forest regrowth after a wildfire

Detailed Description

Forest regrowth after a wildfire, like these green shoots growing five weeks after the Tambo Complex fire in Victoria, Australia, is a slow process that is highly dependent on seedlings experiencing favorable climactic conditions in the period immediately after the fire. (Credit: National Interagency Fire Center)
