New Zealand Tree Grower;May2006, Vol. 27 Issue 2, p32
The article considers the consolidation of New Zealand and Australian fire research teams. Through this consolidation, bushfire researchers are in a stronger position to meet the growing need for technologies to support fire managers. Australian bushfire researchers have extensive experience in the fields of fire behavior and suppression technologies for large scale fires, while New Zealand bushfire researchers are experts in the fields of fore climatology, fire behavior, and fuels modelling for the local environment.
