Title: A review of fire as a pastoral management tool in Central Australia
Author: O'Reilly, Greg
Publication location: Alice Springs
Publisher: Northern Territory. Department of Primary Industries and Fisheries
Description / Abstract: "The review attempts to identify the major gaps in our understanding of using fire for various purposes on pastoral properties, and it is hoped that this can be used to support future research directions. Some topics for future research consideration include a better economic understanding of the different types of fire; for example burning to reduce wildfire risk, as opposed to burning to reduce shrub seedlings. Specific species and vegetation types like witchetty bush and ironwood have little information in regard to fire effects. The use of integrated approaches to scrub control, with fire as the primary treatment, is also discussed." - Executive summary
