The relative importance of fine-scale fuel mosaics on reducing fire risk in south-west Tasmania, Australia

King, Karen; Bradstock, Ross; Cary, Geoffrey; Chapman, Joanne; Marsden-Smedley, Jonathon

Description

In many landscapes, an important fire management objective is to reduce the negative impacts from unplanned fires on people, property and ecological values. In Australia, there exists an inherent assumption that high spatial variability in fire ages and hence fuel loads will have negative effects on both the incidence and spread of subsequent fires, and will enhance ecological values. A recent study using the process-based computer simulation model FIRESCAPE-SWTAS predicted several...[Show more]
