We reason that applying appropriate levels of pyrodiversity for animal conservation requires recognizing that context is important (i.e., there is no one-size-fits-all approach); understanding the different mechanisms underpinning the overarching pyrodiversity hypothesis; focusing on functional landscape heterogeneity, where management of fires is based on species' demonstrated habitat requirements; and using robust decision analyses that link measurable conservation objectives with strategies to achieve them.
