I don't know about all species, but here, the Himalaya blackberries can
surely do that.  I burned the vines off a hillside one time and a short time
later the seedlings from all the fruit that had fallen under the vines came
up.  They literally made a solid carpet - far too many to have been from one
year's seed.  Fortunately for me, it was late enough that the soil was too
dry to support them and they all died off.  Of course the old crowns grew
back beautifully with all the debris removed.
