Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0643104828, Paperback)In Flammable Australia: Fire Regimes, Biodiversity and Ecosystems in a Changing World, leading researchers in fire ecology and management discuss how fire regimes have shaped and will continue to shape the distribution and abundance of Australia’s highly diverse plants and animals. Central to this is the exploration of the concept of the fire regime – the cumulative pattern of fires and their individual characteristics (fire type, frequency, intensity season) and how variation in regime components affects landscapes and their constituent biota.
Contributions by 44 authors explore a wide range of topics including classical themes such as pre-history and evolution, fire behavior, fire regimes in key biomes, plant and animal life cycles, remote sensing and modeling of fire regimes, and emerging issues such as climate change and fire regimes and carbon dynamics. In the face of significant global change, the conservation of native species and ecosystems requires an understanding of the processes at play when fires and landscapes interact.
