Managing fire regimes in north Australian savannas: Ecology, culture, economy

A forum on future directions in fire management in northern Australia

NT Museum and Art Gallery Theatrette, May 7th 2008

This forum presented draft chapters for a forthcoming book focusing particularly on Western Arnhem Land fire project.

The forum featured a number of presentations covering the social and ethnographic history of the region; fire and carbon sequestration; fire and biodiversity; fire, fuels and greenhouse gas emissions; the policy environment and ecological thresholds associated with fire impact.

The details of these presentations will be available in the publication due to be published by CSIRO Press later in 2008. In the meantime, some powerpoints from the forum are available as PDFs from the menu at right.
