Analysis of the Social-Ecological Causes of Deforestation and Forest Degradation in Ghana: Application of the DPSIR Framework
Globally, forests provide several functions and services to support humans’ well-being and the mitigation of greenhouse gases (GHGs). The services that forests provide enable the forest-dependent
Overview of Researches on Bush Fires for Natural Resources and Environmental Management in Ghana: A Review
Research in the world, and more specifically in Africa, on various subjects requires knowledge of previous work from several angles in order to orientate possible research. Thus, the literature
Forestry insurance preference among tree growers in the Ashanti Region of Ghana: a tobit and multi-nomial regression approach
PurposeThe study analyses the preference for forestry insurance amongst tree growers in the Ashanti Region of Ghana. Specifically, the authors examine the factors influencing the amount of forestry
Modeling wildfire drivers in Chinese tropical forest ecosystems using global logistic regression and geographically weighted logistic regression
The tropics is an area with high incidence of wildfire all over the world in recent years, and the forest ecosystem in the tropics is extremely fragile. Thus, it is very important to identify drivers

The taxonomy used in this research work that defines each of the necessary components used to implement a fire detection using WSN is proposed and it is proposed that the component of the proposed taxonomy is used for the validation criteria.


Importance of Fire in Forest Formation under Various Zonal-Geographic Conditions of the Far East
When estimating the influence of fire on boreal forests, it must be taken into account that here fire, after climate, soil, and relief, is the most important natural exogenous factor, determining in
Assessing land use and land cover change in the Wassa West District of Ghana using remote sensing
Vast tracts of forests are lost globally every year especially in the developing countries of the tropics due to various human activities such as lumbering, farming, bush fires, surface mining and
A Review of the Main Driving Factors of Forest Fire Ignition Over Europe
This study analyses the factors driving forest fire ignition in the Mediterranean region including the most common human and environmental factors used for modelling in the European context including the Wildland-Urban Interface and the distance to transport networks.
Restoring composition and structure in Southwestern frequent-fire forests: A science-based framework for improving ecosystem resiliency
Ponderosa pine and dry mixed-conifer forests in the Southwest United States are experiencing, or have become increasingly susceptible to, large-scale severe wildfire, insect, and disease episodes
The Influence of Fuel, Weather and Fire Shape Variables on Fire-Spread in Grasslands
Fire-spread was measured on 121 grass fires in a 2500 ha experimental site in the Northern Territory, Australia. Selected plots were harvested to alter the height, load and bulk density of the
The Analysis of Count Data: A Gentle Introduction to Poisson Regression and Its Alternatives
Two variants of Poisson regression, overdispersedPoisson regression and negative binomial regression, are introduced that may provide more optimal results when a key assumption of standard Poisson regressors is violated.
