Fire ecology in Plant Ecology: homage to Peter Clarke
The journal Plant Ecology has now published an special issue on Fire Ecology to homage Peter Clarke, who died in December 2014 after a long battle with cancer. Peter (University of New England, Australia) made a significant contribution to the fire ecology of Australia; many of his colleagues and collaborators have contributed to this issue (including myself). Link to the special issue.
