Decline of Eucalypt Forests As a Consequence of Unnatural Fire Regimes (Report) Australian Forestry read online review & book description:
Introduction Fire is overwhelmingly important in the evolution and maintenance of the Australian biota, and changes to fire regimes have upset the ecological balance in many forests (Attiwill 1994). Ecologists are frequently frustrated in attempts to reconcile their data with traditional concepts (Attiwill 1994) of disturbance, succession, eutrophication, climax and stability (e.g. Kormondy 1969). These concepts are not applicable to the natural role of fire in maintaining eucalypts as the dominant species in most Australian forests (Jurskis 2005). A 'dynamic equilibrium' is the most appropriate reference point to use in fire ecology (Tolhurst 2004), but fire ecologists typically view long-unburnt treatments as 'controls' and report differences between them and repeatedly burnt areas as 'impacts' of burning (Jurskis 2003). Thus, fire is inappropriately viewed as a disturbance, and exclusion of fire is not recognised a disturbance (Jurskis 2003).
