The complex topic of fire and wildlife
This is the third Note in the Land for Wildlife fire series that looks at the complex topic of fire and wildlife. There are several strategies that wildlife use to help them survive fires and there are many different ways in which wildlife respond to post-fire conditions. Fire can either create, destroy or minimally affect habitat, depending on the animal in question. There are still many unknowns regarding wildlife responses to fire in Australia and this Note aims to provide up-to-date examples where possible.
