Bushfire Assessment and Management Services

Post Fire Research and Analysis

Fire regimes are predicted to change following climate change. This means significant increases in high fire-risk weather, through decreased relative humidity, and changes in temperature, wind speed and rainfall. The climate changes will lead to an increase in intensity, frequency and the extent to which landscapes will be affected by bushfires. 

Landscape-scale fires are expected to have a heightened impact on vegetation communities and, therefore a range of flora and fauna species indigenous to a particular region. 

Expertise

Our specialist team are experienced in:

  • Post fire research and analysis, and can assist clients to determine the effect of fires (both small and landscape-scale fires) on a range of species and vegetation communities across Australia. 
  • Evaluation of patterns of recovery and the drivers influencing recolonisation of fauna species (eg. small mammals, reptiles) 
  • Population monitoring of threatened flora species and documenting the changes in floristic diversity and composition at sites

 

Importance of post fire research and analysis

Post fire research and analysis increases our understanding of how and where animals survive major fires, what their habitat requirements are afterwards, and whether fire (both prescribed burns and bush fires) provide refuge. 

By reviewing the actual results of fire management and risk treatment programs after a major fire, we are able to:


  • Evaluate the effectiveness of fuel, risk reduction programs, and
  • Identify additional measures that could be implemented to achieve desired outcomes
