We’ve all seen the current effects of climate change. As bushfires become larger, more sever and more frequent the impact upon Australia’s bushland will be significant. Understanding how changing fire regimes affect ecosystems and biodiversity has become more important than ever.
Aspart of the Fire, Biodiversity and Community: connecting people through nature project, the Nature Conservation Council’s (NCC) Bushfire Program has produced three videos to help you engage with your local bushland, including in a post-fire environment.
In “Signs of Fire – Measuring fire severity” learn how fire can impact native Australian bushland, the factors that make up a fire regime and hear from NCC ecologist Hannah Etchells about different ways of measuring fire severity in the field.
Check out the other two videos in the series Signs of Fauna, and Monitoring Bushland here.
These videos were produced by the Nature Conservation Council of NSW (NCC) to complement a workshop conducted by the NCC in collaboration with the NSW Rural Fire Service. The videos have been funded by the Bushfire Community Recovery and Resilience Fund project through the join Commonwealth/State Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements.
