The project aims to evaluate the short and medium term effects of the experimental application of prescribed burning technique on the plant biodiversity and fuel structure in different mediterranean plant communities. The research activities will be carried out in 3 experimental areas with different vegetation type and environmental conditions of prescribed burning application. Floristic/vegetation sampling will be carried out for each area applying specific experimental design. The results will be subjected to simple and multivariate statistical analysis in order to highlight correlations between control and treated areas on floristic richness, species of conservation interest and alien species, biomass and structure of the main fuel types
