Title: COST Action FP0701. Post-Fire Forest Management in Southern Europe /
Language: English
Description: Cost Action FP0701, Post-Fire Forest Management in Southern Europe, is a network of researchers and practitioners working in the field of fire ecology and forest management from all around Europe. The action commenced in May 2008 and will continue for four years. The main objective of this Action is to develop and disseminate scientifically-based decision criteria for post-fire management, applicable from stand-level to landscape-level planning. The short-term expected result is to increase the scientific basis for undertaking appropriate post-fire management practices in Southern Europe; the long-term expected result is to improve the effectiveness in restoring burned areas and reduce fire hazard in European forests and landscapes.

Title: Fire Star: a decision support system for fuel management and fire hazard reduction in mediterranean wildland-urban interfaces / Fire Star
Language: EnglishFrenchPortugueseSpanish
Description: Fire star is a decision support system for fuel management and fire hazard reduction in Mediterranean wildland-urban interfaces. It allows foresters, fire-fighters and engineering offices to assess the fire risk for exposed targets (people and houses) on these interfaces, and to test the preventive efficiency of the wildland fuel reduction. The predictions of advanced models of wildland fire behaviour and effects are the bases of the content of the Fire Star system. The researchers also pursued the following scientific objectives: to improve the methods of wildland fuel description and to develop Mediterranean fuel models, to enhance the predictive ability of the wildland fire behaviour model, and to improve the knowledge of wildland fire effects on the exposed targets. The project ran from 2002 to 2005.

Title: PHOENIX /
Language: EnglishPortuguese
Description: PHOENIX is a regional project centre of the European Forest Institute (EFI). PHOENIX has 18 member institutions from Mediterranean countries. The objectives of the consortium are: (1) to obtain a sound database gathering the state-of-the-art of existing scientific knowledge concerning the fire characteristics of the different forest types and respective species; (2) to develop a set of criteria which can be used to classify forest types in terms of the associated fire hazard and resilience; (3) to define the potential and limitation of the various post-fire management options; (4) to help developing the transfer mechanisms needed between research and its application by end-users. Coordinated by Centro de Ecologia Aplicada Prof. Baeta Neves, a research centre of the Instituto Superior de Agronomia in Lisbon, Portugal.
