Info-Gap Decision Theory for Assessing the Management of Catchments for Timber Production and Urban Water Supply

McCarthy, Michael; Lindenmayer, David

Description

While previous studies have examined how forest management is influenced by the risk of fire, they rely on probabilistic estimates of the occurrence and impacts of fire. However, nonprobabilistic approaches are required for assessing the importance of fire risk when data are poor but risks are appreciable. We explore impacts of fire risk on forest management using as a case study a water catchment in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) (southeastern Australia). In this forested area, urban...[Show more]
