Fire drives patterns in mammal biodiversity across the globe. However, due to climate change fire regimes are shifting and this impacts species and their populations. It is important we gain a better understanding of how species are affected by fire across these changing conditions to ensure we are better equipped to plan and manage conservation efforts into the future. This project will look at how population viability may be altered by future fire conditions by combining simulation modelling and fieldwork surveys.
