The Association for Fire Ecology is pleased and excited to announce that the journal Fire Ecology will now be published by Springer Nature. We hope that the additional peer review process and system support provided by them will allow us to continue to publish the best research in fire ecology with increased efficiency and integrity.

Robert Keane, Editor-in-Chief
