Three Parks Savanna Fire-effects Plot Network data packages, 1994-2018

Established: 1994 Aim: Deliver research infrastructure to inform how to effectively manage imposed fire regimes in tropical savanna landscapes. 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? Surveys 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.
