This study's research questions are:

1. Does prescribed burning alter all components of the fuel load in typical vegetation types in the Sydney Basin?

2. Do plants that are characteristic of different vegetation types in the Sydney Basin, such as Wet Sclerophyll forest, Dry Sclerophyll forest and Heath, differ in their leaf morphology and leaf flammability traits?

3. Can information about fuel loads and flammability be used to guide land managers in mitigation of risk from bushfires?
