From the text ... 'It is interesting to note that the greatest annual areas burned since records have been kept, are restricted to the 1980s and the first half of the 1990s (with the exception of 1961 when almost 4 million ha burned). Also, when examining these statistics, it must be recognized that the reliability of the information decreases with increasing distance into the recent past.' © 1998 Backhuys Publishers, Leiden, The Netherlands.
