Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

How wildfires affect animal and plant populations is a complex ecological issue. Robert Whelan examines fire as an ecological agent and discusses how populations of organisms are affected by its passage. Drawing examples from several continents, the author studies the impact of fires on individual organisms, populations, and communities. He looks at the effects on ecological processes such as predator-prey, and plant-herbivore interactions, and summarizes the major aspects of ecology that are of particular importance to fire control--both protection against wildfires and fire as a management tool. This book is unique in its emphasis on general ecological principles rather than regional treatment, and it will be of interest to ecologists, foresters, and other land managers.

Synopsis:

Using general ecological principles, The Ecology of Fire examines the ecological effects of wildfires and fires used in land management. Examples are drawn from many ecosystems on several continents. The book is aimed at all those concerned with the effects of natural and prescribed fires on the biota.
