Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) is one of Queenslands main agencies actively involved in fire management, including suppression. QPWS has a number of legal as well as ethical responsibilities relating to the control of fire on and near QPWS estate.
This is a copy of a fire management manual, dated 1st September 1995.
This is one of the 99/05 Working Paper Series by CSIRO Wildlife and Ecology, specifically focused on the issue of global change impacts on fire dynamics in the mulga woodlands of south-west Queensland.
Proceedings of a conference held in Charleville, Queensland, on the 15th of September to the 17th of September in 1992 on the Fifth Queensland Fire Research Workshop.
A report on the terminated project "The Effects of Fire on Woody Weed Control & Composition of Ground Flora in Southwestern Queensland"
The results of a study conducted by R.S.B. Greene, C.J. Chartres and K.C. Hodgkinson on the effects of fire on the soil in a degraded semi-arid woodland. This document details the study focusing on cryptogam cover and physical & micromorphological properties.
The results of a study conducted by R.S.B. Greene, C.J. Chartres and K.C. Hodgkinson on the effects of fire on the soil in a degraded semi-arid woodland. This document details the study focusing on the susceptibility of the soil to erosion by shallow rain-impacted flow.
This paper is part of the Queensland Herbarium's ecological research program and is based on research conducted by Don W. Butler and Russell J. Fairfax from The Queensland Herbarium.
Previous fire experiments using artificial fuel have shown that annual fires, especially those applied in the autumn, can effectively control coppicing understorey shrubs in semi-arid woodlands. Such frequent fire is impossible to apply under natural conditions given the limited...
Riparian habitats are highly important ecosystems for tropical biodiversity, and highly threatened ecosystems through changing disturbance regimes and weed invasion. An experimental study was conducted to assess the ecosystem impacts of fire regimes introduced for the removal of...
There is interest in the global community on how fire regimes are changing as a function of changing demographics and climate. The ground-based data to monitor such trends in fire activity are inadequate at the global scale. Satellite observations provide a basis for such a...
This paper records data on the spatial distributions of different fuels, plant architecture and post-fire seedling recruitment and survivorship of T. scariosa, obtained during field studies on contrasting mallee sites in western New South Wales. In addition, rainfall data...
