Climate change and the increasing management of natural areas with fire, especially near the growing urban interface, is shifting many fire regime elements, such as fire season, intensity and frequency. We undertook research to determine how fire regimes are changing, particularly after the wildfires of 2019-20, and investigated how plant species cope with shifts in the fire regime. We make recommendations for managing fires.
