The Eurasian Fire in Nature Conservation Network – formerly called European Fire in Nature Conservation Network – provides a platform and networking mechanism for those who actively apply or conduct research in prescribed burning for the purpose of nature conservation (biodiversity management, habitat management), landscape management and forestry. The region of interest is temperate-boreal Eurasia and the adjoining countries of Southeast Europe, Caucasus, Central and Northeast Asia. The network is closely associated with the EU FIRE PARADOX project, the EU LIFE project “Rohrhardsberg, Obere Elz und Wilde Gutach” and the EU Leonardo da Vinci EUROFIRE project and supports the advancement of the use of prescribed fire in Eurasia

This Eurasian Fire in Nature Conservation Network is an initiative of the Fire Ecology Research Group / Global Fire Monitoring Center (GFMC) and aims to build up and gradually expand communication and networking mechanisms in which European Partners present their views and projects on research and development in

  • cultural and natural history and prehistory of fire
  • application of prescribed fire in nature conservation and landscape management
  • fire ecology
