Actual fire regimes compared to optimal fire regimes
Victorian Government uses tolerable fire internal as a metric to determine the current resilience condition of key fire response species. An increase in area where lower than minimum TFI and ongoing reduction in long unburnt habitats between 2007 and 2017 is a threat to biodiversity. Future large fires may determine if current TFI regimes are appropriate.
