Special Issue: Savanna burning
Tropical savannas are the world’s most fire-prone biome, making fire a key issue for the maintenance of savanna ecosystem function and for the management of savanna biodiversity. Savanna burning also makes a significant contribution to global greenhouse gas emissions, through its effects on emissions of methane and nitrous oxide, and on carbon sequestration. There is growing international interest in reducing the extent and severity of savanna fires in the context of greenhouse gas abatement.
Savanna burning, therefore, sees an unprecedented meeting of interests relating to biodiversity protection, greenhouse gas abatement, and culturally appropriate economic opportunity for historically marginalized communities. Read the Special Issue here.
