Abstract Describes an unusual situation where fire has led to the local elimination of annual sorghum, which is a dominant feature of the monsoonal tall grass savannas of northwest Australia. Fire poses a potential risk to populations of annual sorghum through the burning of fallen seed and so seed burial in the soil is a key requirement for population persistence.
