Recent Australian wildfires made worse by logging and associated forest management

Lindenmayer, David B.; Kooyman, R. M.; Taylor, C.; Ward, M.; Watson, J. E. M.

Description

The recent fires in southern Australia were unprecedented in scale and severity and much commentary has rightly focused on the role climate change played in exacerbating the risk of fire. Here, we argue policy makers also must recognize that historical and contemporary logging of Australian forests also had a profound effect on these fire’s severity, fire frequency, and other key aspects of fire
