Editorial Reviews

Review

"The book takes a multidisciplinary approach to fire management in northern Australia... One issue that the book addresses specifically is taht the Australian approach to fire management has been shaped by experiences in the more populated areas of the nation, and in the urban-wildland interface. The savannas are sparsely populated, so some of this experience must be altered or discarded to enhance the cultural and ecological treasures of the north." (Natural Hazards Observer) --This text refers to the paperback edition.
