Brief DescriptionAims to deliver research infrastructure to inform how to effectively manage imposed fire regimes in tropical savanna landscapes covering three Northern Territory National Parks.

Full DescriptionEstablished: 1994

Key research questions:

What are the effects of management-imposed fire regimes on the responses of the savanna matrix, flora and fauna species?
What are the effects of management-imposed fire regimes on vegetation and associated biomass dynamics?

The occurrence of fire is assessed bi-annually on-ground and satellite derived fire mapping is conducted three times a year.
A full inventory of vegetation is undertaken every five years.
Terrestrial vertebrates are monitored systematically but on an irregular and less frequent basis
