Figure 7.2: -

Photo of a post-fire landscape at risk of regeneration failure: a site in the Northwest Territories, one year after a 2014 wildfire. This site had previously burned in 2004 and the short (10-year) interval between fires has led to a complete lack of tree recruitment. Poor regeneration is attributed to the absence of both seedlings and soil organic matter prior to the fire.
