About this book

Large regions of the world are regularly burnt either deliberately or naturally. This book attempts the first coherent conceptual synthesis of the field for researchers, lacking until now despite the widespread occurrence of such fire prone ecosystems, and the considerable body of research on plant population biology in relation to fire.


Contents

Introduction; why and how do ecosystems burn?; surviving fires - vegetative and reproductive responses; plant demography and fire 1 - interval-dependent effects; plant demography and fires 2 - event-dependent effects; fire and the evolutionary ecology of plants; fire, competition and the organization of communities; fire and management; fire and the ecology of a changing world.
