AbstractStudies examining plant flammability descriptors as fire-adaptive traits are normally formulated within the framework of inclusive fitness theory. In such framework, flammability- enhancing traits are considered to favour individuals if the elevated flammability confers fitness benefits. In post-fire seeder species (i.e., those with fire-stimulated germination from a persistent seed bank), higher flammability could increase the recruitment opportunities for the offspring of the individual with enhanced flammability by increasing the chance of opening spaces and by producing the necessary cues for triggering germination from the seedbank.
