Aim: 
To describe the concept of 'landscape traps', using Eucalyptus regnans as an example.
Type of Study: 
Conceptual model.
Key Results: 
There is a positive feedback loop between reduced forest stand age and fire. Fire creates young stands of forest, and young stands burn at higher severity than mature forest.
Treatments: 
NA.
Response: 
Retain large stands of unburnt, unlogged forest.
Models: 
NA.
Locations: 
Victorian mountain ash forests.
Response variable : 
NA.
Replication: 
NA.
Ecosystem: 
Temperate forest.
