Fire Biology

Fire Biology
  • Duration: 4 Hours (approx.)

Is fire good for the environment? Let's answer this burning question.

Fire has been present in the Western Australian landscape for millions of years – since long before the arrival of humans – and it has influenced the evolution of plants and animals. Engage in biological fieldwork to examine the impacts of fire on the environment. Discover the role fire has played in the evolution of our forests and the interdependent relationship of fire and the Australian bush. Learn about traditional burning practices and the difference in fire behaviour between wildfire and prescribed burns.
