Fire and ecology in northern Australia

We look at the role of fire in the ecosystems of northern Australia and how best to manage its impact on biodiversity and greenhouse gas emissions.

  • Understanding fire in tropical savannas

    Tropical savannas are Australia's most fire-prone biome, with up to half of many savanna landscapes being burnt each year.

  • Burning to manage greenhouse gas emissions

    Tropical savanna fires make a significant contribution to the nation's accountable greenhouse gas emissions. Our research looks at how to measure and manage these emissions, as well as Indigenous livelihood opportunities from the emerging carbon economy.
