A soil heating index for interpreting ecological impacts of jarrah forest fires

A soil heating index for interpreting ecological impacts of jarrah forest fires

Australian Forestry 62(4): 320-329

Soil heating during forest fires gives rise to numerous ecological responses, many of which are poorly understood. In order to interpret, predict and manage these responses (such as fire-induced legume regeneration), it is necessary to identify the key fire, fuel and soil factors that affect heat transfer to the soil, and to determine functional relationships incorporating these factors.
