This chapter presents some basic concepts about grassland fire, explores the role of fire in determining where grasslands occur, and examines the impact of fire on species composition. It also illustrates how vegetation and physical site factors interact and influence fire regimes, and describes the ways in which fire can be used as a management and restoration tool. The chapter focuses primarily on California annual grasslands, which occur within the Mediterranean climate zone.
