On Saturday, June 9, the Journal Club in Rasquera, a success of participation! On this day we have members of very diverse institutions: Firefighters from Navarra, colleagues from the BRIF of Aragon, Bombers staff from the Generalitat de Catalunya and GRAF, researchers from the University of Lleida and the Technological Forestry Center of Catalonia (CTFC) , members of various ADF (Forest Defense Associations) and the Group of Reforç d'Eines Manuals (GREM), and the very Ilmo. Mr. Mayor of Rasquera, Bernat Pellisa.
A total of 56 people discussed the ecology of fire of tree and shrub species present in the area and the influence of fire on them, as well as the future in fire management in forest fire extinguishing devices. The seminar began in the auditorium of the Cultural Center of Rasquera, where the concepts that would be observed later were introduced on-site. Then, two double burned areas were visited, by a fire of 95 and the current one, and the effects on vegetation were discussed. The day ended in The Font del Teix, from where we observe black pine forest structures (Pinus nigra), yew individuals (Taxus baccata), and where they returned to reflect on what the road to fire management should be.
