Fire Across Boundaries

Edited by Anne Ganteaume, Núria Prat-Guitart, Francisco Seijo, Guillermo Defossé

This collection includes a selection of communications presented at the Fire Ecology Across Boundaries: Connecting Science and Management conference held in Florence, Italy on October 4 - 7, 2022. The conference was co-hosted by the Association for Fire Ecology and the Pau Costa Foundation in partnership with the University of Florence and Regione Toscana.

The papers represent topics associated with the conference's main theme and focus: the connection of fire ecology research and management across geographic and disciplinary boundaries.

  1. Fire is an important ecological process that shapes structures and compositions in many ecosystems worldwide. Changes in climate, land use, and long-term fire exclusion have altered historic fire regimes often...
