Walpole Fire Mosaic Study Spring 2012

21st November 2012

DEC staff, Janet Farr, Paul van Heurck and Allan Wills under Neil Burrows, hypothesised that a fine-grained mosaic of patches of vegetation representing a range of biologically-derived fire frequencies, seasons and intensities will provide diverse habitat opportunities and can also contribute to reducing the occurrence of large, damaging and homogenising wildfires.

The Walpole Fire Mosaic study comprises 26 sites that have been surveyed in autumn and spring over the last eight years following prescribed and mosaic wildfires.  Michael Curran volunteered for this years spring sampling.
