Nešić, M., Marković, M., Trajković, R., Pavlović, D., Ilić, M., Mitić, V., Stankov-Jovanović, V.: Totalcontent of organic acids in plants from fire affected forest. Biologica Nyssana, 1 (1-2), December 2010:65-69.

In 2007 catastrophic fire on Vidlič Mountain had been occurred. It had been burned down nearly 1000hectares of forest. That year vegetation was totally destroyed. Ecosystems affected by fire are those withgreat changes in variety of ecological parameters and they can recover by natural succession. Post fire areasare being occupied by pioneer plants which start one natural cycle. Total organic acids content in plants fromfire affected forest was studied and the same plant species from forest which had not been affected by firewere taken as a control. Total organic acids content for all plants from forest affected by fire was higher thanfor plants from fire non affected forest except one plant (Aegopodium podagraria).

Key words: organic acids, forest affected by fire, pioneer plants, Vidlič Mountain
