To evaluate the relative importance of extrinsic (such as fire weather and climate cycles) and intrinsic (such as proneness to fire due to stand age and structural development) factors in driving the decline of obligate seeder forests.
Type of Study:
Modelling and geospatial analyses.
The effect of stand age was small relative to the effect of weather (forest fire danger index).
Response variable :
Probability of high-severity (canopy-scorching) fire.
