dc.description.abstractWe compared photosynthesis, water relations, and leaf nitrogen con- <br /><br />tents among burned, clipped, and mature shrubs of Rhus laurina after a wildfire <br /><br />in the Santa Monica Mountains of southern California. Within the first year after <br /><br />fire, photosynthesis, stomatal conductance, and nitrogen contents for individual <br /><br />leaves were elevated for burned and clipped plants as compared to mature shrubs. <br /><br />Except for foliar nitrogen contents, these differences disappeared within 14 months <br /><br />after fire. Within 1 7 months after fire, resprouts of burned and clipped shrubs <br /><br />had a total leaf area and total leaf nitrogen content about twice that of mature <br /><br />plants. These results indicate that during the first year after fire, enhanced pho- <br /><br />tosynthetic performance of individual leaves contributes to the rapid recovery of <br /><br />shoot tissue— in succeeding years, enhanced total leaf area and total canopy pho- <br /><br />tosynthesis continue the recovery process.
