Fire affects soil organic matter and the emergence of Pinus radiata seedlings

These results demonstrate the regeneration capacity of Pinus radiata in forest ecosystems, which is essential to minimise  long-term fire impact of fire. Abstract This study integrates thermal analysis of soil with tests of fire effects on Pinus
