Message from Dr Julia McMorrow & Dr Anna Gilchrist
Four FIRES seminars on the effects of moorland and heathland wildfires and prescribed fires on ecosystem services were held during 2008-2009, www.fires-seminars.org.uk. The series was funded jointly by ESRC and NERC.
A policy brief has been produced. It summarises the key messages from the series, policy recommendations and knowledge gaps:
We would like to know what you think about these recommendations. Please take 10 minutes to complete our on-line survey. We are keen to hear from anyone who has views on UK vegetation fires. It is not necessary to be involved in fire management or policy-making, or to have attended the FIRES seminars. We welcome responses from as wide a range of stakeholders as possible. Please feel free to forward it to other interested parties.
The survey closes on October 15th. Responses are individual and anonymous. However, if you choose to provide your contact details we will enter you into the prize draw for a £25 book token. Further information can be found on the introductory page of the survey. If you have any queries please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
