Fire-adapted Ericaceous shrub species like black huckleberry are only top-killed by surface fires, and they usually increase in productivity after fires because of an increase in resources that includes a nutrient influx and increased light (Matlack et al., 1993).
Even harder to find is the Black Huckleberry, Gaylussacia baccata, found on dry wooded hillsides in the Americas.
