Abstract

This paper examines the methods employed in a previous study by Strauss et al. (1989) in which the authors suggested that the degrees of size inequality of large fires are much the same in southern California and Baja California, Mexico. We found that both the graphical method and the curve-fitting method employed in that study are inappropriate for comparing fire-size frequency distributions. Our examination of fire histories using the analysis of variance and the contingency table analysis indicates a significant difference in fire-size frequency between these regions. The result implies that spatial strategies of wildfire management must be established to minimize the potential of unnatural sizes and that management strategies should be focused on effective preventive treatments.
