Earlier today Radio National/Fran Kelly ran Prof Lindenmeyer on forests and logging and bushfires.

Our guess it's probably run in The Age in Melbourne as well recently covering the coronial inquiry into the Victorian bushfire catastrophe Feb 2009.
This echoes our understanding from as far back as advocacy documents since 1995 as here at Bushfire science, with quality science over 3 continents now reinforcing these diagrams 15 years later.
All too late for so many bereaved, especially as it relates to landscape conversion over the last 50 years of wet forest types. Really it's common sense that wet forest type is a natural bushfire fuel management system . But these forest types are all but lost in the dry winds through the dusty schleophyll regrowth.
