UQ Fire works on bushfires research, with a main focus on the flammability of vegetation.

UQ Fire research on bushfires include:

This project is aiming to contribute to the fundamental knowledge of environmental and forestry sciences on wildland fires or bushfires phenomena by implementing the fire safety engineering (fire science) point of view. The main objective of the work is to observe and understand clearly the changes of moisture content, and its impact to the flammability of vegetation and risk of bushfires using a wide range of experimental scenarios and several Australian vegetation species.
