Abstract

This Special Issue of the Journal deals with the interactions between fires and wetlands, focusing on particular wetland soils and sediments of the Swan Coastal Plain bioregion that have a propensity to burn. In doing so, contributing authors cover the type of information required to understand those influences, like the nature of the soils and sediments themselves, the implications of the fires for environmental, social and economic values, and how the fires might be prevented.
