Methodology used in Cuba for estimating economic losses caused by forest fires
Assessment of economic losses caused by forest fires is a highly complex but important activity. It is complicated first by the large number of effects, in different periods, brought about in the


A new bench-scale methodology for evaluating the flammability of live forest fuels
The present study proposes a new method in order to evaluate the flammability of live plant parts at bench-scale. Flammability parameters were estimated by the use of a mass loss calorimeter, and
Allometric equations for estimating canopy fuel load and distribution of pole-size maritime pine trees in five Iberian provenances
Adequate quantification of canopy fuel load and canopy bulk density is required for assessment of the susceptibility of forest stands to crown fire and evaluation of silvicultural treatments aimed at
Canopy fuel characteristics in relation to crown fire potential in pine stands: analysis, modelling and classification
Crown fire occurrence and subsequent crown fire behaviour are strongly dependent on canopy fuel characteristics, especially canopy fuel load (CFL), canopy bulk density (CBD) and canopy base height
Effects of flame interaction on the rate of spread of heading and suppression fires in shrubland experimental fires
Suppression fires are frequently used in wildland firefighting operations. However, little is known about how suppression fires behave and how the main front and the suppression fire interact. Lack
Setting the Scene for Post-Fire Management
This chapter sets the scene for post-fire management and restoration approaches in Southern Europe. It starts with a short overview of wildfire trends in Europe, and then introduces the main
Evaluation of the flammability of gorse (Ulex europaeus L.) managed by prescribed burning
The results suggest the need for intensive management of gorse shrubland to maintain them at a very young age in order to reduce flammability associated with the rapid physiological and structural changes in this kind of vegetation.
Potential crown fire behavior in Pinus pinea stands following different fuel treatments
Forest fires are permanent seasonal threats that have been accentuated in recent years by climate change. Taking this problem into consideration, forest policies must propose courses of action to
