Australia, with topics including overviews and case-studies of fire management in and around
a range of wetland types, wetland fire paleo-histories in Australia, wetland responses to fire
and post-fire recovery and prospects for traditional burning in and near aquatic ecosystems
including wetlands.

Climate change and wildfire risk
Fire impacts assessment (soil, biodiversity, water supply, carbon stocks and others)
Fuel management (biomass, SFM, mosaic landscape)
