A/Prof Tina Bell (University of Sydney and the Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC) answers viewer questions that we didn't get time for during our National Fire Fuels Science webinar: the science of hazard reduction. The webinar took place on 13 May 2020. Watch the webinar at https://www.bnhcrc.com.au/firefuelswebinar/2
0:18 How does hazard reduction burning promote healthy species and ecosystem diversity?
1:02 How does hazard reduction burning impact on the elements of Australian ecosystems such as vegetation and leaf litter?
2:10 Has climate change had any measurable effect on leaf litter fall and decomposition?
3:31 Do we need to consider the impacts of ecosystems being repeatedly burnt by severe fire at periods less than the calculated recovery period?
4:18 Will a hotter and drier climate reduce dead fire fuels, and if so, will this aid fire suppression?
