Which recent climatic and socio-economic changes have affected human-driven fire regimes?   

It is challenging to answer this question in a global scale. That is why in this project we look at a selection of study sites. Each of them represents different fire regimes and ecosystems in order to analyse climatic, demographic, economic, legal and land-use changes, and their impact on fire occurrence from an historical point of view.  

The shown infography depicts the temporal evolution of wildfire legislation in the region of Galicia (one of the study areas) from 1968 to 2021. A link to the corresponding legislation has been provided for each legal reference.  

The infography also presents wildfire occurrence based on regional statistics for the period.
