SPECIES: Quercus oblongifolia | Mexican Blue Oak
FIRE ECOLOGY OR ADAPTATIONS : Mexican blue oak is generally top-killed by fire; surviving Mexican blue oak sprouts [31]. Oaks generally survive low intensity, fast fires [31]. Mexican blue oak may also survive high intensity fires of short duration [9,31]. Fires that occur in closed-canopy oak woodlands are probably high intensity, stand replacement fires [31]. Prior to settlement, fire return intervals may have been from 10 to 20 years. Currently, fire return intervals are longer due to overgrazing and fire suppression [47]. POSTFIRE REGENERATION STRATEGY : Tree with adventitious-bud root crown/soboliferous species root sucker Tall shrub, adventitious-bud root crown Secondary colonizer - off-site seed
