Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Forest fire, though an integrative part of forest ecosystems, has become an increasing threat to ecosystems, properties and even human lives due to human influences and other forces. Climate change is likely to alter forest fire regimes, engendering a better understanding of its impact on forest fire activity and the development of mitigation and adaptation strategies. This Special Issue focuses on broad aspects of forest fire coupled with climate change, urbanization, and other forcing that has broad regional and global implications. Manuscripts based on field studies and/or modeling from around the world are welcome. This Special Issue is intended to assemble a unique collection of the latest research and review papers that address ecological, socioeconomic and/or policy aspects of forest fire and its mitigation and adaption options, and to advance our knowledge in these arenas.
