Hapaxanthic  - Hapaxanthic is a expression out of plant ecology which is now a little out of use.  Plant species are called hapaxanthic when their individuals will form only once inflorescence and seeds and then die.  Thus these plants only survive by their seeds.  I wonder how many plants are hapaxanthic thus endangered, threatened and extinct as a result of treatments such as the “Burn and Clearcut Project”".
