One of the main alternatives for adapting Mediterranean forest landscapes to climate change is the generation of heterogeneous mosaics, composed patches of forest areas at different levels of maturity, along with open areas of shrubland or grassland. Together, these should present greater resilience to disturbances, especially large wild fires.

The diversity of possible situations and the magnitude of the challenge we face will require the use of different tools adapted to each context: forestry, conservation or restoration measures, the use of herbivores (domestic or wild), and paradoxically, the use of fire.

In some places, prescribed burns are beginning to be tested as a forest management tool aimed at increasing heterogeneity and reducing biomass. This event will discuss the effects of fire on ecosystems, its applicability as a management tool in protected areas, the opportunities it offers, and also the risks it represents.
