Large unburnt areas, not small unburnt patches, are needed to conserve avian diversity in fire-prone landscapes

Berry, Laurence E.; Driscoll, Don; Lindenmayer, David B

Description

Mitigating the impacts of large‐scale fires on biodiversity is becoming increasingly important as their frequency increases. In response, fire managers have engaged with the concept that retaining small unburnt residual areas of vegetation within extensively burnt landscapes may facilitate biodiversity conservation. However, it remains uncertain how the size and isolation of these unburnt residuals influence faunal distributions, persistence and recovery following fire. We used a replicated...[Show more]
