Abstract

Wildfire affects ecosystem processes, threatens human lives and causes economic loss. In forested wetlands of inland Australia, a better understanding of fire regime pattern is required given the dense population of fire-sensitive species such as Eucalyptus camaldulensis (river red gum). This study ...

Abstract

Real-time information about the spatial extents of wildfires can assist both emergency responders and the general public to mitigate the impact of the wildfires. However, in a large spatial and temporal scale, timely and accurate information about the areas affected by ongoing wildfires is often in ...

Abstract

The loss of forests along with the various types of shrubs in the Mediterranean region is seen as an important driver of climate change and has been repeatedly related with the observed land degradation and desertification in the region. Nevertheless, the extent of woody perennial vegetation cover...

Abstract

Context: Wildland fire intensity influences natural communities, soil properties, erosion, and sequestered carbon. Measuring effectiveness of fuel treatment for reducing area of higher intensity unplanned fire is argued to be more meaningful than determining effect on total unplanned area burned....

Abstract

The impacts of invasive plant control on native animals are rarely evaluated. Using data from an eight-year study in southeastern Australia, we quantified the effects on native bird, mammal, and reptile species of (1) the abundance of the invasive Bitou Bush, Chrysanthemoides monilifera ssp. ...

Abstract

Plant regeneration strategies are commonly dichotomised as 'resprouter' v. 'non-resprouter', but this fails to recognise that the extent and type of resprouting following fire disturbance vary within species. Here, we report a case of widespread mortality of resprouters following a fire that burnt...

Abstract

Wildfires are a natural disturbance in many ecosystems, creating challenges for land management agencies who need to simultaneously reduce risk to people and maintain ecological values. Here we use the PHOENIX RapidFire fire behaviour simulator to compare fuel treatment strategies that meet the...

Abstract

Fire shapes biome distribution and community composition worldwide, and is extensively used as a management tool in flammable landscapes. There is growing concern, however, that fire could increase the vulnerability of native fauna to invasive predators. We developed a conceptual model of the ways...

Abstract

Large plantations of radiata pine (Pinus radiata Don) are susceptible to widespread damage from wildfires that compromise the sustainability of forest production and downstream industries. Fuel management zones, strategically located plantation areas where an intensive silvicultural prescription...

AbstractFull Text

Nutrient cycling in semi-arid woodlands is likely to be influenced by patchy vegetation, wildfire and the supply of easily available organic C, e.g. root exudates. The study assessed the effect of wildfire and vegetation patch on response of microbial activity to labile C addition in soil from a...
