Veronique’s research explored the economics of prescribed burning and which fire regime is best for which area. She developed an economic model of prescribed burning that could subsequently analyse the cost and benefits of different fire management options and the economic value of species conservation and biodiversity.
This analysis has incorporated biological information related to bushfires and fire regimes such as how the flora and fauna respond to different prescribed burning regimes, how the biota is affected by the spatial and temporal arrangement of fires and the effects of prescribed burning on reducing bushfire risk. This information has been integrated into an economic framework which will appraise bushfire impacts on communities, the environment and the economy.
