Our findings showed that ecological value might be reduced by 50 % due to the fire perturbation in the ecosystem, low adapted to it and degraded fire-regime. The biomes most affected are the tropical and subtropical forests, tundra and mangroves. The integration of biotic and abiotic , fire regime and regeneration factors resulted in a powerfull way to develop mapping ecological vulnerability to fire and assessment in order to generate adaptation plans of management in forest masses.
