For this research project we set out to see how seedling and resprout survival rate of melasma laurina would fare in the post fire environment found around pepperdine. The expected seedling survival was set to be 1% and the resprout survival was at 100%. From our field research we found that the the seedling survival was 41% and the resprout 57.3%. By using a T-test we had a p value < 0.001 for both data sets, this means that our data deviated greatly from our expected data and meant that we had to reject our hypothesis.
