In recent years, wildfires of unprecedented scale and duration have occurred in different regions of the world, a phenomenon that is expected to be exacerbated by climate change. Although burned areas generally decreased in the Mediterranean basin in recent decades, a current increase in extreme wildfire events represents a potential threat to human and natural systems. Since scholars have highlighted the potential of agroforestry (AF) systems in contributing to a fire risk reduction in Mediterranean environments, this study aimed to examine whether lower wildfire risk factors could be found in AF areas under simulated climate change conditions.
