Fire Regime, Climate, and Vegetation in the Sierras de Córdoba, Argentina
Pages: 55-73
DOI: 10.4996/fireecology.1101055

Wildfires are a primary disturbance in the Sierras de Córdoba, Argentina, with approximately 2 152 000 ha burned between 1993 and 2012.  However, little is known about the spatial and temporal patterns of fires and their relationship with climate and vegetation in this area.  Such information is of great value for fire risk assessment and the development of strategies for fire management.  Our main objective was to analyze fire activity in four sierran ranges, assessing which weather and climate conditions were mostly related to fire activity, and which land cover types were mostly burned.  [Read More]

Selecting Control Sites for Post-Fire Ecological Studies Using Biological Criteria and MODIS Time Series Data
Pages: 1-17
DOI: 10.4996/fireecology.130274623

Wildland fires play a key role in the functioning and structure of vegetation.  The availability of sensors aboard satellites, such as Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS), makes possible the construction of a time series of vegetation indices (VI) and the monitoring of post-fire vegetation recovery.  One of the techniques used to monitor post-fire vegetation is the comparison of a burned site with an adjacent unburned control site.  However, to date, there is no objective method available for selecting these unburned control sites.  [Read More]
