Figure. A conceptual model for vegetation dynamics in an upland Florida landscape. Arrows indicate hypothesized transitions under various disturbance regimes: FF = frequent fires (110 yr), MF = moderately frequent fires (520 yr), IF = infrequent fires (15100 yr), NF = no fires within 100 yr, WF = winter fires, PR = pine removal, F = fire reintroduction (Ecol. Appl. 8:935946, 1998).
