Summary
"Aimed at senior undergraduate students, researchers, foresters and other land managers, Dr. Whelan's book examines the changes wrought by fires with reference to general ecological theory. The impacts of fires on individual organisms, populations and communities are examined separately, and emphasis is placed on the importance of fire regime. Each chapter includes a listing of 'outstanding questions' that identify gaps in current knowledge. The book finishes by summarizing the major aspects of ecology that are of particular relevance to management of fires - both protection against wildfires and deliberate use of fire."--Jacket
