Post-fire management and restoration of Southern European by Francisco Moreira, Margarita Arianoutsou, Piermaria Corona,

The administration of those burned forests has been given less realization than fireplace prevention or hearth suppression matters, however the post-fire administration of burned components increases powerful issues (economic and social affects, soil erosion and water caliber, biodiversity loss, wooded area restoration). even though there are a number of courses which tackle post-fire administration, the focal point of those has been both on normal ways to recovery or particular themes resembling combating post-fire soil erosion. This publication is set the post-fire administration of fire-prone wooded area varieties in southern Europe. It presents the 1st entire evaluate of the subject, starting from stand-level to landscape-level administration, and from emergency activities to long term recovery approaches.
