Editorial Reviews

Review

"The authors have succeeded in producing an insightful study of fire as an important determinant of ecosystem assembly and distribution..........The first and second sections provide an excellent introduction for a researcher new to these regions or to fire ecology while the final section, by not shying away from big issues and debates, provides plenty of thought-provoking grist for experienced specialists in the biogeography of these regions."
Dylan Schwilk, Department of Biological Sciences, Texas Tech University for frontiers of biogeography

Book Description

Exploring the role of fire in the five Mediterranean-type climate ecosystems, this book provides unique insights into fire regime diversity and its role in the assembly and evolutionary convergence of ecosystems. Topics covered include regional patterns, the ecological role of wildfires, and the evolution of species within those systems.

Although I have not watched the book in full detail yet, the contents seem to be exhaustive in terms of fire characteristics in Mediterranean ecosystems all over the world. The chapter devoted to fire management would perhaps seem a bit short to firefighters, decision-makers and forest managers, but the scope is undoubtedly ecological rather than management-oriented. I would recommend it.
