Vegetation Fires and Global Change
Pages: 84-85
DOI: 10.4996/fireecology.1001084

Scientific syntheses on wildfire and fire use over the past 30 years have typically been conducted at sub-continental scales, often focused on specific topics such as ecological effects. Vegetation Fires and Global Change is a rare attempt to pull together concepts, patterns, and trends of wildfire throughout the world, covering a broad range of mostly biophysical issues. Targeted at internationally relevant themes and proposed actions, this ambitious undertaking is comprised of nearly 400 pages and 25 chapters, with contributions from 58 different authors.  [Read More]

Fire in Mediterranean Ecosystems: Ecology, Evolution and Management
Pages: 86-87

These fires cause significant economic losses through the destruction of homes and other structures, and not infrequently result in loss of human life. It is this socioeconomic context that makes mediterranean fire such a relevant topic. Fire in Mediterranean Ecosystems: Ecology, Evolution and Management literally defines the scientific scope and content of mediterranean fire ecology at the global scale.  [Read More]
