- We found no studies that evaluated the effects of burning leaf litter on shrublands.
'We found no studies’ means that we have not yet found any studies that have directly evaluated this action during our systematic journal and report searches. Therefore we have been unable to assess whether or not the action is effective or has any harmful impacts. Please get in touch if you know of such a study for this action.
Burning leaf litter may help to increase the amount of light that reaches the soil surface, and this may help to increase the probability of colonization by shrubland plants.
