These two immense woody plants are the very least ‘weedy’ of all species of plants. Second, and more relevant to our argument for the management of agrobiodiversity, large seed size, while allowing species dominance of vegetation to persist, also is an adaptation to the deep burying of seed needed to escape annual fires. The larger the seed, the deeper in the ground the seed can successfully germinate and emerge. Species, such as annual cereal crop relatives, with large seeds, can survive a fire regime that destroys smaller-seeded competitors.
