The Power of Fire

Smoke is generated as a consequence of fire."It is known that the chemical signals of smoke not only influence seeds during fires and the immediate post fire environment, but also last for considerable periods."

Smoke has the ability to adhere to soil and plant surfaces which plays arole in the germination process by changing the seeds surface.
