  • This paper analyses the fire regime over 41 years (1956 to 1996) in Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Park, a mesic savanna area in South Africa. The study focuses at the landscape scale of tens of kilometres and at the medium term temporal scale of decades. Variation in fire regime was analysed in relation to variation in annual rainfall and the influence of management. The average annual area of the park that burnt was 26% and the average area of individual fires was 9.1 km2. Statistics relating to the… CONTINUE READING
