Abstract

Forest fire occurrence during the past three centuries was examined using historic records from documents and fire-scarred trees. The influence of climate on fire regimes was apparent in regional synchroneity of large fires and association of reduced fire activity and El Nino-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) events. The latter association may have forecasting value. -Author
