Does pyrodiversity really promote biodiversity?

Local knowledge is important when managing fire for plant and animal conservation.

An article from the Ecological Society of Australia notes:

  • 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.
