Summer Shorts: What happens when a fire starts to burn?

Next up in Summer Shorts – we venture OUTSIDE.

We sat in the shade with Ryan Tangney, an ecologist who researches seeds and fire. We asked him all about how seeds actually work, and how ecosystems come back after fire. Listen in to realise just how impressive our native plants are, and what happens when they’re put in hot water.

You can find Ryan @ryantangney on Twitter.

Particle Podcast is about science and the people who just love it. It’s produced and presented by Rose Kerr (@rosie.zkerr). Particle is powered by Scitech, and you can tell us which are your favourite plants at @ParticleWA on Twitter and Instagram.
