Aim: 
Assessment of relationships between forest age and fire severity
Type of Study: 
Correlational study based on contrasts between stand age, logging history and fire severity
Key Results: 
Young logged and regenerated forests are significantly more likely to be subject to high-severity crown-scorching fire
Reviewer:
