9) in north-east Queensland indicated that early dry season low-intensity fires fuelled by drying grass and Melaleuca and Corymbia leaf litter, as well as dried palm leaves, were not intense enough to destroy seedlings whose apical meristems were 2 cm or more below the soil surface. Orscheg and Parsons (1996a) invoked the partial burial of seeds and remote-tubular germination mode to explain the survival of seedlings of L. australis after fire in eastern Victoria.
