'In South and East Africa the influences of age-old practice of firing vegetation are of the first biological and economic importance. Despite the popular interest exhibited in the effects of burning vegetation, our scientific information requires...
Fire climate, which may be thought of as the synthesis of daily fire weather over a long period of time, is a dominant factor in fire-control planning. In a broad sense, climate is the major factor in determining the amount and kind of vegetation growing in an area, and this vegetation makes up the fuels available for wildland fires.
