Fire in Grazing Management: Patch-Burn Grazing

Jesse Randall
Fire is a critical natural process necessary for maintaining ecosystems around the world, providing a means for renewal, regrowth and maintenance of habitats.

In grassland and savanna ecosystems, fire plays an important role by limiting encroachment of wood species and cycling nutrients; however, in nearly all grassland and savanna habitats fire was not the only process at work. Historically, fire was closely coupled with grazing – namely by large mammals. These coupled processes, known technically as the firegrazing interaction or pyric-herbivory, combined to create a diverse habitat matrix in varying stages of succession across the landscape.
