Fire on Earth: An Introduction transcends individual subfields to bring together our current understanding of this significant topic. Fire on Earth: An Introduction will go beyond a summary of existing data to provide a foundation for an interdisciplinary field of Fire Research.
Divided into four parts, Fire on Earth: An Introduction covers fire in earth history – including how lessons from the past can be applied to modern climate change – the ecology and biogeography of modern fires, the role of fire in human culture and the physical behavior of vegetation fires.
Fire on Earth: An Introduction is unique in uniting a broad range of fire research in one comprehensive text and placing current research in the context of fire behavior and dynamics over earth's history. Fire on Earth: An Introduction will be indispensible to all researchers in fire science, particularly advanced students and graduates in fire management, fire behavior, fire ecology and related courses. It will also be valuable reading for researchers in plant science, geology, climatology, atmospheric sciences and those interested in global climate change.
