A shift from natural to human-driven fire regime: implications for trace-gas emissions



A shift from natural to human-driven fire regime: implications for trace-gas emissions



Holocene 11(3): 373-375



Vast areas of the West African savannas are burned annually (Menaut et al., 1991). Natural, lightning-caused fires have existed for millions of years, but today 99% of the fires are of anthropogenic origin. The trace-gas emissions from these fires have not been addressed with as much interest as the tropical-forest burnings, since the net CO<sub>2</sub> emissions from savanna fires are zero.
