Very slow sucker shoot regeneration rates are recorded for Vaccinium Consanguinium, Hypericum caracasanum, Chusquea subtesselata, and Castilleja irasuensis three years after a fire at 3300 m elevation in Costa Rica. Colonization after the fire was very slow; three years later there were still large patches of bare ground. Decomposition of stems killed by the fire was so slow that many were still intact and upright after three years.
