  /AB  The effect of high temperatures and ash on seed germination of two Iberian 
    pines (Pinus nigra ssp salzmannii and P sylvestris var iberica) has been 
    studied. These two pines are widely distributed in the oromediterranean and 
    supramediterranean bioclimatological belts of the eastern half of the 
    Iberian Peninsula. Our results are clearly very similar for both pines. 
    Seed cover protects embryos up to 70 degreeC (germination percentage above 
    90%), which is a very low temperature for a wildfire, catastrophically 
    failing when this temperature is surpassed. Addition of ash solutions did 
    not modify this trend. As has been previously reported, both pines have 
    photophillous seeds, which indicates that they can regenerate rapidly after 
    disturbance, except wildfires, as our results illustrate. These results 
    confirm the field observations after very large fires in extensive and 
    homogeneous pine forests (> 10 000 Ha), in the sense that recruitments of 
    both pines are extremely rare after disturbance. At a community level, our 
    results seem to indicate that pine formations must be naturally confined to 
    the oromeditenanean belt or at permanent stands in spurs, crests or steep 
    rocky slopes where density is very low and wildfires do not become 
    catastrophic. The existense of formations in the supramediterranean belt 
    must be man-induced (landscape changes) and driven, not necessarily 
    planted, and can be rapidly substituted by oak formations after intense 
    wildfires.
