Future wildfire in circumboreal forests in relation to global warming

  title={Future wildfire in circumboreal forests in relation to global warming},
  • Flannigan
  • Published 2007
Despite increasing temperatures since the end of the Little Ice Age (ca. 1850), wildfire frequency has decreased as shown in many field studies from North America and Europe. We believe that global warming since 1850 may have triggered decreases in fire frequency in some regions and future warming may even lead to further decreases in fire frequency. Simulations of present and future fire regimes, using daily outputs from the General Circulation Model (GCM), were in good agreement with recent… CONTINUE READING
