Fire in Bushland Conservation in Southeast Queensland

One of our Smokespotters has drawn my attention to a publication on the role and use of fire in biodiversity conservation in Southeast Queensland (thanks Geoff).

Fire in Bushland Conservation: the role of fire in the landscape and how we can manage it for biodiversity conservation presents a very good overview of both the role of fire in the ecology of SEQ habitats and the conservation implications of fire frequency and intensity.

The document is available as a pdf file at: or as a hard copy from the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service Regional Bushcare Facilitator (contact: 07 3202 0233).  (As the document is undated, I'm unsure whether this position still exists after the recent cuts to government services in SEQ, but it is definitely available on the Fire and Biodiversity Consortium web site).
