Postfire flowering: Lapiedra martinezii

Lapiadra martinezzi
Lapiadra martinezzi (Amaryllidaceae) flowering after fire in eastern Spain. This is also an example of an hysteranthous geophyte (flowering before appearing the leaves).

Upper left: From La Granadella (Benitatxell, La Marina Alta, Alicante), one month after a high intensity wildfire that occurred the 5 Sept 2016.
All others: in a Pinus halepensis open woodland that was burned (at low intensity) in April 2016 (for firefighting training) near Valencia; photo taken the 29th Sept 2016. There were many individuals (hundreds to thousands) flowering and some with fruits. We did not find any flower in the surrounding unburned area.

For other species with fire-stimulated flowering, see: jgpausas.blogs.uv.es/tag/postfire-flowering/
