As Australians, we think about landscape fires primarily in terms of bushfire disasters. But this is only part of the picture. In this webinar Fay Johnston, Director of the Centre for Safe Air and Professor at the Menzies Institute for Medical Research, presented a lecture titled: Climate change, landscape fires, and human health: understanding fire phenotypes. A newly published global synthesis led by Professor Johnston describes seven ‘phenotypes’ of landscape fire around the world, each with distinct patterns in their health and environmental impacts. In this talk, Professor Johnston explains how a more nuanced model of landscape fire can help us to design interventions at individual, community, and regional levels to maximise the benefits and minimise the harms associated with fire in the landscape. Dr Amanda Wheeler chaired the session and moderated an open discussion on the subject.
