Scientists develop improved fire management tools for Africa’s savannas

ScienceDaily (February 14, 2013)

Scientists have developed specialized graphs that map out fire behavior, known as monographs, for landscape managers in Africa’s savannas. The study pinpoints the optimal conditions for setting early-season prescribed fires — a process that when executed and timed properly, reduces the risk and impact of late dry season bushfires in increasingly fragile ecosystems, both of which are exacerbated by climate change.
