Fire Ecology & Management

Welcome to ESA's Fire Ecology & Management Research Chapter!

This group is designed to facilitate discussion about current insights and directions in fire ecology research and management.

The ESA’s Fire Ecology & Management Research Chapter was established at ESA11: 'Ecology in Changing Landscapes' held in Hobart, Tasmania. The research chapter includes a diverse membership of academics, land managers, practitioners, community and early career researchers who have an interest in fire ecology and management.

The Fire Ecology and Management Chapter aims to:

  • hold regular themed talk/poster sessions at ESA conferences
  • hold an informal meeting/mixer at each ESA conference
  • run occasional one day events independent of the conference
  • keep in contact via email and other forms of media.

Past conveners: Josephine MacHunter & Sam Lloyd

Current convener: seeking expression of interest (please see Upcoming events below)

We welcome your suggestions for developing chapter events so please contact Josephine MacHunter or Sam Lloyd if you have some ideas of possible events.
