Abstract

This paper is divided into two parts. The first section presents the argument in support of my contention that skillful fire management is critical for the management of biodiversity in Northern Australia. The second part considers problems standing in the way of skillful fire management, and philosophical issues associated with the destruction of biodiversity due to a failure to adequately manage landscapes.
