Fire and Fauna ProtectionLand for Wildlife in South East Queensland has produced an informative note on the way planned fires can impact fauna. This note outlines how a range of species from the region respond to fires and provides advice for landholders managing fire on their properties. Link to the PDF file.

- Some studies show that more plant and animal species live in landscapes with a high diversity of fire histories, while others show no such relationship.
- The variation in fire regimes that will promote plant and animal conservation depends on the type of ecosystem.
- Fire management will be most effective when it is guided by local knowledge of plants, animals and and the habitats they depend on.
