Fires Seminar Series follow-on survey

Four FIRES seminars on the effects of moorland and heathland wildfires and prescribed fires on ecosystem services were held in the UK during 2008-2009, www.fires-seminars.org.uk. The series was funded jointly by ESRC and NERC.

A policy brief has been produced. It summarises the key messages from the series, policy recommendations and knowledge gaps: www.fires-seminars.org.uk/downloads/FIRES_Policy_Brief_final.pdf
