Description
General introduction Predicting species’ responses to grazing from published studies Simple traits do not predict grazing response in semi-arid shrublands and woodlands in Australia Sprouting of semi-arid plants How far can we get by treating plants simply as populations of independent stems ? Modelling plant survival of disturbance as a function of individual stem-sprouting-probabilities Global patterns of sprouting ability : can plant species be dichotomised into sprouters and non-sprouters ? Drought damage and sprouting : the roles of leaf and stem construction Funding the bud bank : a review of the costs of buds Conclusion.
