    • A wildland fire is a serious threat for forest ecosystems in Southern Europe affecting severely and irreversibly regions of significant ecological value as well as human communities. To support decision makers during large-scale forest fire incidents, a multidisciplinary system has been developed that provides rational and quantitative information based on the site-specific circumstances and the possible consequences...

    • Wildland fire is a global phenomenon, and a result of interactions between climate-weather, fuels and people. Our climate is changing rapidly primarily through the release of greenhouse gases that may have profound and possibly unexpected impacts on global fire activity. The present paper reviews the current understanding of what the future may bring with respect to wildland fire and discusses future options for research and management...

    • Wildland fire is a widespread phenomenon that affects how many ecosystems function and often threatens human life and property. Development of fire danger rating systems, aimed at identifying critical periods of high fire danger at early stages of its occurrence, is an important step for proactive fire and resource management...

    • Wildland fire is a common threat in many European countries, especially in the Mediterranean Basin. Every summer in Portugal, Spain, Greece, Italy or France thousands of hectares of forests and shrub-land burn and even people are endangered. Since wildland fires represent a social and economic risk for the society, there is a compelling interest in understanding them to better control them or, at least, to weaken their impact. Providing accurate fuel maps is critical to study fire behavior, assess fire hazard, and quantify fire effects...

    • Wildland fire is an important disturbance agent in forests of the American Northwest. Historical fire suppression efforts have contributed to an accumulation of fuels in many Northwestern forests and may result in more frequent and/or more severe wildfire events...
