What is the importance of natural fire regimes in promoting biodiversity?

    Natural fire regimes are essential for maintaining biodiversity in many ecosystems. Fire, when part of the natural cycle, can create diverse habitats by influencing vegetation structure and composition. Some plant species are adapted to fire, relying on it for seed germination or regeneration. Additionally, fire can reduce competition, leading to increased habitat heterogeneity and supporting a wide range of species. Conservation efforts often incorporate the understanding of natural fire regimes to sustain biodiversity and ecosystem health.
