    Citation: Fire Ecology 2011 7:7010074
  11. Africa is often referred to as the Fire Continent, and fire is recognised as a natural factor of the environment due to the prevalence of lightning storms and an ideal fire climate in the less arid regions wit...

    Citation: Fire Ecology 2011 7:7010057
  12. Traditionally, forest fires in Mexico, the Caribe, and Central America have been perceived, by both urban and some rural societies and government agencies, only as destructive phenomena. Certainly 40% of fores...

    Citation: Fire Ecology 2011 7:7010040
  13. We define pyrogeography as an integrative, multidisciplinary perspective of landscape fire, its ecological effects, and its relationships with human societies. Like biogeography, this program spans geographic ...
