Description

From the Conclusions (p.63) ... 'The causes and impacts of fire in the boreal Eurasian region are multifaceted due to its rich cultural diversity and a broad range of socioeconomic and environmental conditions. Thus, it is impossible to draw any generalized conclusion or develop recommendations that would lead to unified responses or to generally valid fire management strtegies and public policies.' © 2000 Springer-Verlag New York, Inc. © 2000 Springer-Verlag New York, Inc.
