Epicormic: Epicormic growth is a plant response to damage or stress, such as fire. Growth occurs from a previously dormant bud on the trunk or a limb of a tree. Rough barked Eucalypts utilise this ability after fire damage.

This is an evolutionary advantage in fire-prone landscapes. 

Lessons for the future.
