La prévention des incendies de forêt par le brûlage dirigé: prédiction des effets sur les arbres

Objective

To analyse the effects of prescribed burning on trees.


This project proposes (i)to analyse the mechanisms leading to
heat damages to crowns and trunks, (ii)to determine the
thresholds for temperature reached or energy released beyond
which prescribed burning leads to damages, (iii)to analyse the
mechanisms of heat resistance of leaves and trunks of tree
species by studying their morphology, their architecture and
their physiology, (iv)to monitor temporal changes in effects of
burning and their consequences on tree vitality and (v)to monitor
the dynamics of nutrients in tree foliage.
