The Brazilian Cerrado is one of the largest centers of biodiversity in South America. Fire, topography, geomorphology, moisture and soil nutrient availability are among the key factors that determine the structural conditions of the Cerrado vegetation. Fire is a natural disturbance that determines the physiognomy and the structure of vegetation, and influences the diversity in Cerrado. ...
Fire regime is described by a range of important attributes such as fire frequency, intensity, severity, seasonality, size distribution or fire return interval. The complexity of fire shapes have been also identified as a key component of fire regimes, and the fire patch identification from pixel-level information recently emerged as an additional way of providing informative features a...
Savanna biomes are distributed across Africa, Australia and South America, and its distribution is determined by variation in rainfall amount and seasonality, soil fertility, and disturbance regimes. Fire is a natural and anthropic disturbance that affects savanna vegetation, thus quantifying long-term changes in the temporal and spatial patterns of fire occurrence is crucial for unders...
