Eucalpyts are the dominant forest and bushland trees in Australia by using fire. They give off oils and vapors in hot weather and fires which explode and burn like petrol vapor. But they have fire resistant bark and seeds, which only germinate after fire, in the burnt animal and vegetable ashes. Everything else gets destroyed.
A lot of people in Tasmania only saved themselves by fleeing into the ocean, most people know how to swim in Australia.
