A wildfire risk management concept based on a social-ecological approach in the European Union: Fire Smart Territory

  
International Journal of Disaster Risk Reduction, Vol. 18 (September 2016), pp. 138-153, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ijdrr.2016.06.005

Abstract

The current wildfire policies in European Union countries have not solved the wildfire problem and probably will not be effective in the future, as all the initiatives focus on suppression and minimize the use of fire embedded in the Traditional Ecologic Knowledge of European communities. The traditional fire use as a tool for land management has been handled and almost criminalized by an urban-centric perspective and anti-fire bias. These policies are poorly adapted to, and cannot cope with, the complex nature ...

 

Human factors of fire occurrence in the Mediterranean

  
In Earth Observation of Wildland Fires in Mediterranean Ecosystems (2009), pp. 149-170, https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-642-01754-4_11
edited by Emilio Chuvieco

Abstract

The Mediterranean region accounts the larger proportion of human caused fires in the world (95%) followed by South Asia (90%), South America (85%) and Northeast Asia (80%) (FAO 2007). Socio-economic changes which are occurring in Europe along with global warming result in an augment of fire risk. Systematic and reliable information on fire causes is necessary in order to improve wildland fire management. However, collection of information on forest fire causes and motivations is still quite restricted in most countries around ...

 

Management of Threatened, High Conservation Value, Forest Hotspots Under Changing Fire Regimes

  
In Post-Fire Management and Restoration of Southern European Forests, Vol. 24 (2012), pp. 257-291, https://doi.org/10.1007/978-94-007-2208-8_11

Abstract

The current chapter starts by describing the elements of biodiversity in the Mediterranean Basin hotspot. It then describes climate change and fire regime interactions. Geographically restricted forest types with high conservation value such as Abies cephalonica, A. pinsapo, Juniperus macrocarpa, Quercus trojana, Tetraclinis articulata and Pinus leucodermis forests are presented as case studies. These forest hotspots are threatened by changing fire regime either because they lack of any active post-fire regeneration mechanism or because they are exposed to more frequent fires ...

Meta-information Database (INRMM-MiD).
This database integrates a dedicated meta-information database in CiteULike (the CiteULike INRMM Group) with the meta-information available in Google Scholar, CrossRef and DataCite. The Altmetric database with Article-Level Metrics is also harvested. Part of the provided semantic content (machine-readable) is made even human-readable thanks to the DCMI Dublin Core viewer. Digital preservation of the meta-information indexed within the INRMM-MiD publication records is implemented thanks to the Internet Archive.
