Background information and definitions
Prescribed fire is commonly used to reduce fuel loads in shrublands in an attempt to supress wildfires. For the purposes of this synopsis we do not consider this to be a conservation intervention as it is not used to benefit biodiversity. However, prescribed fire can be used to mimic the natural fire cycle of some shrublands to benefit biodiversity.
