Studies find the seeds of a forest’s renewal after wildfire, drought

By quantifying the seed production of more than 700 trees species worldwide and how each species’ productivity can vary by location, two new studies can help boost the success of efforts to replant and restore forests after devastating wildfires, droughts or other disturbances. The studies, which synthesize data on species from the tropics to subarctic regions, are the first to quantify global patterns in tree seed production.
