Eight institutions are researching together how burned areas develop in the first years after the wildfire. Multiple organism groups (plants, fungi, insects, birds, mammals) and abiotic factors (f.e. soil, hydrology, microclimate) and their interactions are investigated. The project aims among others to develop pyrophobic (fire repellent) and climate change resilient forests and how forest management can influence this.
