The effect of a pine invasion on the fuel characteristics was studied to predict fire behaviour and hypothesize potential changes on fire regime. Subalpine Andean forests, fire-prone environments, in the Malalcahuello Reserve in south-central Chile were invaded by the non-native Pinus contorta affecting the native endangered trees Araucaria araucana and Nothofagus antarctica communities. Several fuel components were evaluated by studying different variables, such as fuel load, vertical and… CONTINUE READING
