Aim: 
To review the effects of increasing wildfire frequency on tree mortality and regeneration in temperate forests of Victoria, including forests dominated by obligate seeder eucalypts.
Type of Study: 
Review.
Key Results: 
Recurrent fires threaten the persistence of the fire sensitive obligate seeder forests, and could cause a shift to non-forest states if successive fires occur before regenerating trees set seed.
Treatments: 
NA.
Response: 
suggested management interventions include total fire suppression in obligate seeder forests, and aerial sowing, which requires collecting and maintaining adequate seed stores.
Models: 
NA.
Locations: 
Victorian forests.
Response variable : 
NA.
Replication: 
NA.
Ecosystem: 
Temperate forest.
