Contrasting fire responses to climate and management: insights from two Australian ecosystems

King, Karen; Cary, Geoffrey; Bradstock, Ross A.; Marsden-Smedley, Jonathon


This study explores effects of climate change and fuel management on unplanned fire activity in ecosystems representing contrasting extremes of the moisture availability spectrum (mesic and arid). Simulation modelling examined unplanned fire activity (fire incidence and area burned, and the area burned by large fires) for alternate climate scenarios and prescribed burning levels in: (i) a cool, moist temperate forest and wet moorland ecosystem in south-west Tasmania (mesic); and (ii) a spinifex...[Show more]
