DISTRIBUTION AND OCCURRENCE

SPECIES: Myrica cerifera | Southern Bayberry
GENERAL DISTRIBUTION : Southern bayberry is most common in peninsular Florida and on the Coastal Plain of the southeastern United States. It occurs from the Florida Keys north to southern New Jersey, Maryland, and Delaware; west to eastern Texas, southeast Oklahoma, and central Arkansas. Atypical reported occurrences include Maine, Massachusetts, and New York. Outside the United States, southern bayberry grows in Bermuda, Cuba, the Bahamas, Puerto Rico, and the British West Indies. It grows in Mexico, Central America, and South America from Costa Rica to Belize [16,20,26].

It grows equally well with the subtropical vegetation of south Florida and the temperate vegetation of the Inland Coastal Plain. Southern bayberry is the most common shrub in the longleaf (Pinus palustris)-slash pine (P. elliotii) type [3,20,23,36]. Other common overstory associates include loblolly pine (P. taeda), southern redcedar (Juniperus silicicola) [11], cabbage palmetto (Sabel palmetto) [48], pond pine (Pinus serotina) [4], live oak (Quercus virginiana) [19], spruce pine (Pinus glabra) [22], and baldcypress (Taxodium distichum) [11,33]. Common understory associates include dahoon holly (Ilex cassine), sawgrass (Cladium jamacensis) [30], muhly grass (Muhlenbergia spp.), beard grass (Andropogon spp.), saltbush (Baccharis halmifolia), myrsine (Myrsine floridana), and sweet bay (Magnolia virginiana) [49].

VALUE AND USE

SPECIES: Myrica cerifera | Southern Bayberry
WOOD PRODUCTS VALUE : NO-ENTRY IMPORTANCE TO LIVESTOCK AND WILDLIFE : A consistent contributor to the available browse biomass in southeastern forests, southern bayberry is occasionally eaten by cattle [7]. Southern bayberry frequently invades rangeland and decreases the production of more palatable forage [45]. Many birds eat southern bayberry fruit, including the northern bobwhite quail and the wild turkey [15]. The seeds are important winter food for Carolina wrens and tree sparrows [17]. PALATABILITY : Southern bayberry is unpalatable to white-tailed deer in eastern Texas [24,25]. Its palatability to cattle is unreported. NUTRITIONAL VALUE : NO-ENTRY COVER VALUE : Diffuse southern bayberry growth provides some cover for northern bobwhite quail, although unrestricted growth produces unusable habitat [21]. VALUE FOR REHABILITATION OF DISTURBED SITES : Southern bayberry's usefullness for disturbed site rehabilitation is unknown. Useful attributes include a moderate tolerance of salt-spray [34] and an ability to fix atmospheric nitrogen at a rate that exeeds that of legumes [9]. Wild southern bayberry seeds can be harvested by hand or shaken onto a canvas. Seed processing requires removal of the waxy coat by mechanical agitation or rubbing over a dry screen. Before sowing, the seeds require stratification at 34 to 40 degrees F (1-4 deg C) for 90 days. The seeds should be drilled into rows 8 to 12 inches (20-30 cm) apart and covered with 0.25 inch (0.8 cm) of firmed soil. Fall plantings should be mulched. Southern bayberry yields approximately 84,000 cleaned seeds per pound (184,000/kg) [20]. OTHER USES AND VALUES : Southern bayberry is the source of wax used in making bayberry candles. Boiling removes the wax from the fruit. The genus name comes from the Greek "myrike", meaning tamarisk or some other fragrant plant. The specific epithet, cerifera, means "wax-bearing" [20,41]. Southern bayberry was first cultivated in 1699 for medicinal purposes. Its leaves, bark, and fruit yield pharmaceutical chemicals [20]. Southern bayberry is a popular ornamental because it grows quickly, responds well to pruning, and is heavily clothed in attractive evergreen foliage [20,41]. MANAGEMENT CONSIDERATIONS : Southern bayberry is an understory pest on southern pine plantations. It competes with pine seedlings and contribute to an accumulation of understory fuels which increases the potential for damaging wildfires [27,28]. Pearson and others [36] believe that the presence of southern bayberry on grazed longleaf pine plantations may have eased grazing pressure on the pine seedlings. A 20 percent Garlon 4, 10 percent Cide-kick (a penetrant), 70 percent diesel-oil herbicide mixture can be used for southern bayberry control. Basal applications should be made in February, using the "streamline" technique [32]. Tests of burning, chopping, and blading methods for southern bayberry control found that southern bayberry can return to pretreatment levels within 3 years [43].

BOTANICAL AND ECOLOGICAL CHARACTERISTICS

SPECIES: Myrica cerifera | Southern Bayberry
GENERAL BOTANICAL CHARACTERISTICS : Southern bayberry is an erect, evergreen, small tree or shrub. It is native to low-elevation tropical, subtropical, and warm-temperate regions of the Americas. It grows to a maximum height of 40 feet (12 m), and a maximum d.b.h. of 12.5 inches (32 cm) at maturity [16,20]. Its flat leaves are toothed near the end and aromatic when crushed [3]. The diminutive flowers are unisexual, dioecious, and borne on catkinlike axillary spikes. Southern bayberry fruit are small, light green, dry drupes which are covered with a conspicuous layer of pale blue wax, giving them a "warty" appearance. Each axillary spike bears 1 to 12 berries, which may persist over winter [10,20]. The seeds have no endosperm [20]. Southern bayberry is clonal, with several stems growing from a common root collar. Underground runners extend the growth laterally [16]. Root nodules, associated with a symbiotic actinomycete, are capable of atmospheric nitrogen fixation [9]. RAUNKIAER LIFE FORM : Undisturbed State: Phanerophyte (microphanerophyte) Phanerophyte (nanophanerophyte) Burned or Clipped State: Cryptophyte (geophyte) REGENERATION PROCESSES : Southern bayberry reproduces vegetatively by sprouting from its root collar and underground runners [9]. Seedlings will establish on disturbed sites [39], but the seeds require removal of their waxy coating before they will germinate [20]. Birds, feeding on southern bayberry fruit, probably accomplish wax removal and seed dispersal. SITE CHARACTERISTICS : Southern bayberry grows on a variety of sites but seems to be restricted to climates with mild winters and long, hot, humid summers, and elevations below 500 feet (150 m). It grows in heavy soils [41] which may be either wet or dry, in habitats that may be open or wooded [3]. Southern bayberry's ecological amplitude is demonstrated by reported growth on fresh to slightly brackish banks and shores, flats and interdune swales, pine and palmetto flatwoods and savannas, cypress-gum ponds and swamps, wet and dry prairies, pitcher-plant bogs, upland mixed woodlands, old fields, and fence and hedge rows [6,16,40]. Additionally, it grows on sites that are peculiar to the Florida Everglades, particularly the drier portions [29] where it reaches its highest density with low to medium flooding [41]. Such sites include tree islands, cypress heads, and wet and dry hammocks [10,16,29,47]. SUCCESSIONAL STATUS : Southern bayberry is an early successional species. It is one of the first woody plants to invade secondary dunes and beach meadows in the Southeast [9], and naturally reseeds disturbed sites from adjacent forests [31]. In the Everglades, increased human-caused disturbance, such as draining and burning, has caused southern bayberry to become more common as it invades sawgrass, marl prairie, and mixed hardwood swamp communities. Dense thickets form, known locally as "hell nests" [18,29,47]. SEASONAL DEVELOPMENT : Southern bayberry flowers between February and June. Its fruit ripens from August to October [2].

FIRE ECOLOGY

SPECIES: Myrica cerifera | Southern Bayberry
FIRE ECOLOGY OR ADAPTATIONS : Southern bayberry is a fire survivor. Its root collar suvives fire and it regenerates by basal sprouting [44,45]. POSTFIRE REGENERATION STRATEGY : survivor species; on-site surviving root crown or caudex

FIRE EFFECTS

SPECIES: Myrica cerifera | Southern Bayberry
IMMEDIATE FIRE EFFECT ON PLANT : Fire easily top-kills southern bayberry shrubs [44]. Typically the entire aerial portion of the stem dies [13], although extremely light fires may only kill the most recent annual growth [21]. The root collar survives and remains vigorous. DISCUSSION AND QUALIFICATION OF FIRE EFFECT : Southern bayberry stems die quickly. The stems and foliage of southern bayberry contain large amounts of aromatic compounds that are quite flammable [6], making it a potential fire hazard. Presumably, severe enough fires will kill southern bayberry rootstock, although no such instances were reported in the literature. The rootstock is apparently quite hardy. PLANT RESPONSE TO FIRE : Southern bayberry sprouts vigorously from surviving root collars following fire [2]. The most vigorous growth occurs in the 1st postfire year [1]. Stem density and frequency increase rapidly relative to cover. Cover increases less rapidly because the southern bayberry clones are self-thinning [2,44]. DISCUSSION AND QUALIFICATION OF PLANT RESPONSE : Fire periodicity probably determines the long-term fire response of southern bayberry. In loblolly stands in South Carolina, single or occasional summer fires caused southern bayberry cover to increase. By contrast, annual summer fires reduced southern bayberry cover and sprouting vigor, eventually eliminating it. Lotti [27] documented 100 percent mortality after as few as three successive annual summer fires. Fire response may be site dependant as well. A single fire on an eastern Texas slash pine stand caused a steady decline in southern bayberry for 3 years [24]. On wet everglades sites (sawgrass, marl prairie, mixed hardwood swamp), drainage coupled with frequent burning favors southern bayberry invasion [18,40,47]. On drier savannas, fire suppression favors southern bayberry invasion [5,6]. On eastern Texas longleaf pine savannas, southern bayberry control required fires every 5 years [6]. FIRE MANAGEMENT CONSIDERATIONS : Lotti [28] recommended four successive annual fires or three successive biannual summer fires to achieve a cummulative southern bayberry mortality of about 90 percent. Winter fires are less effective than summer fires for southern bayberry control and may be used when management goals call for southern bayberry enhancement [28,44]. Winter fires can be used for control if done frequently. When southern bayberry invasion is undesireable, fires should be annual for the first several years, then become less frequent as southern bayberry cover decreases. Such a prescription may be combined with grazing for control and maintenance at a level where southern bayberry provides livestock forage [26,45]. On nitrogen-poor sites, managers should be cautious about southern bayberry control. Annual fires greatly reduce southern bayberry density, minimizing its nitrogen-fixing contribution [42]. Dry fuel weights can be predicted from basal stem diameters for southern bayberry. Refer to Reeves and Lenhart [39] for fuel load calculations.
