We tested whether Plant Functional Type (PFT) composition changes with time since fire in directions predicted through consideration of fire response traits. Changes were better predicted in a community competitively dominated by non-resprouting serotinous shrubs than one dominated by resprouting serotinous trees. The PFT model used appears suitable for broader application in non-resprouting serotinous shrub-dominated communities, but less so elsewhere.
