Fire Management seeds are planted!

The first undergraduate training course on Fire Ecology and Management has been conducted for students of the National University of Mongolia (15-17 May 2015), followed by the exercise of under canopy burning in a Siberian Larch (Larix sibirica) forest stand in Udleg Forestry Research and Training Station, Mongolia. In the first field exercise day, students were taught introductory lectures on prescribed fire techniques, the EuroFire standards and methods to estimate under-canopy biomass and observation of fire weather before and during the burning. Students used the drip torch and applied different burning techniques and thus became familiar with fire behaviour and fire effects. Photos: FMRC-CAR.
