Pressestimmen"Recommended for advanced undergraduates, graduates, and faculty/researchers with a basic background in population and community ecology." M.G. Messina, Choice ...very well written...This short work should facilitate communication between fire managers and fire ecologists, and would be useful as a text for a seminar in fire ecology, as the bibliography is extensive and appropriate. I recommend this book to all serious students of fire, whether or not they work in the boreal forest." Jane H. Bock, Plant Science Bulletin
