Abstract

Aim: Deliver research infrastructure to inform how to effectively manage imposed fire regimes in tropical savanna landscapes. Key research questions: 1. What are the effects of management-imposed fire regimes on the responses of the savanna matrix, flora and fauna species? 2. What are the effects of management-imposed fire regimes on vegetation and associated biomass dynamics? Surveys: - The occurrence of fire is assessed bi-annually on-ground and satellite derived fire mapping is conducted three times a year. - A full inventory of vegetation is undertaken every five years. - Terrestrial vertebrates are monitored systematically but on an irregular and less frequent basis.
