Fire is a disruptive element in the dynamics of Canada’s boreal forest. In 2015, some 7,000 fires consumed almost 4 million hectares of forest across the country. That is the equivalent of more than 100 times the area of the island of Montreal. Do these fires break out at random? That is the question researchers at the Canadian Forest Service set out to answer.
