Fire can have detrimental impacts on threatened species, with the extent of such impacts generally increasing with the extent and severity of the fire. The impacts of fire may also be compounded by interactive factors, and the recovery of populations post-fire may be compromised by threats that affect individuals that survived the fire. As a consequence, managers can influence the extent and pace of post-fire recovery by attempting to control these compounding threats (Hradsky 2020; Legge et al. in review).
