Wildland fire management is in transition, as fire is increasingly being seen as an important ecological process in wildland systems. At the same time, communication and spatial technologies, including GIS, global positioning systems and remote sensing technologies are changing the way that wildfire is perceived as a process, and how it is managed.
This special issue, with guest editors Greg E. Gollberg, Leon F. Neuenschwander and Kevin C. Ryan, brings together 13 papers that summarise the collective knowledge within the field, by authors who represent the state of the art and science of wildland fire management. It makes a major contribution to the fire research and management knowledge base.
