Threat: Fire & Fire SuppressionEdit


Suppression or increase in fire frequency and/or intensity outside of its natural range of variation. Examples include fire suppression to protect homes, inappropriate fire management, escaped agricultural fires, arson, campfires, and fires for hunting.

This category focuses on the human activities that lead to either not enough fire or too much fire in the ecosystem in question. If fire escapes from established agricultural lands, it belongs here, if fire is used to clear new agricultural lands, it belongs in the appropriate category in Agriculture & Aquaculture. It also includes damaging "natural" fires in systems that have lost their natural resilience. (CMP)
