About Fire Ecology


Fire Ecology is the international scientific journal supported by the Association for Fire Ecology. Fire Ecology publishes peer-reviewed articles on all ecological and management aspects relating to wildland fire. We welcome submissions on topics that include a broad range of research on the ecological relationships of fire to its environment, including, but not limited to:

  • Physical and biological fire effects
  • Drivers of fire effects and fire regimes
  • Climate change impacts to fire regimes and effects
  • Fuel characteristics, dynamics, and sampling techniques
  • Effects of fire exclusion
  • Abiotic and/or biotic interactions with fire
  • Linkages with fire behavior and effects
  • Social and policy issues relating to fire ecology and/or fire management
  • Modelling and technology transfer products related to fire ecology and/or fire management

The journal publishes several types of peer reviewed articles, from original research papers and short communications to opinion pieces and book reviews, as well as occasional reprints of “classic” fire ecology articles.
