Wildland Fire Research in the Mediterranean Basin


Wildland Fire Science

The scientific Mediterranean fire literature is extremely large and comprehensive. A major networking activity in wildland fire science in the Mediterranean Region is provided by the EUFIRELAB. EUFIRELAB is based at the National Research Institute for Agronomy (Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique – INRA), Avignon, France. EUFIRELAB is structured in units for reinforcing the co-operation among Euro-Mediterranean teams; activating large exchanges of knowledge and know-how; developing common concepts, approaches, and languages; fostering the common use of facilities for research and/or technological development; and so, avoiding unnecessary and expensive replications in wildland fuel description and modeling, wildland fire behaviour modeling, wildland fire, ecosystems functioning and bio-diversity management, socio-economy, decision support tools, wildland fire measurements methods, wildland fire risks and hazards, wildland fire suppression, and wildland – urban interfaces management. An observatory of wildland fire sciences and an innovative Web site enabling close connections between EUFIRELAB members and with the public area ensure a large dissemination and valorization of EUFIRELAB achievements towards the end-users and stakeholders.

International Conferences on Forest Fire Research

Readers interested in publications are encouraged to look at the proceedings of the series of International Conferences on Forest Fire Research held at the University of Coimbra, Portugal. Five of these international conferences have been held every four years between 1990 and 2010 (the last conference was held 15-18 November 2010, Coimbra, Portugal). A large number of Mediterranean contributions can be found in the conference proceedings. For more information on publications of past conferences contact the head of the organising committees:
