Who would have thought before 2018 that old growth rainforests would burn. As sad as this possibility is, interesting this is brought up since there has been chatter, along similar lines, concerning what fires of similar magnitude may do to ecosystems across California going forward. Already some early indications various areas aren't recovering like they should ( X species of trees / other plants not returning / surviving well past germination, if seed germinates at all, etc ). Here in AZ, specifically in the desert itself, there's a nasty invasive grass that threatens to greatly impact the desert itself as it spreads and helps to greatly intensify fires to which the Sonoran Desert Eco-region did not evolve with. Grass in question was originally brought here, for Cattle grazing.. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
