Description: The wildland fire scenario outside North American is characterized by increasing amount and severity of wildfires worldwide. In Europe, most of the Mediterranean countries suffer devastating forest fires, despite fire management efforts. Examples of the wildland fire theater within the developing countries and the tropical world have been given at this Symposium on Wildland Fire 2000. Most of the wildfires in Latin America, Africa and Asia, however, are not monitored and remain unreported. Only a few spectacular wildfires are noticed by the world media and public. The1982-83 rain forest wildfires in Borneo (East Kalimantan, Indonesia) were reported because of growing international concern in the decrease of the tropical forest land base. The same refers to the 1985 fires on the Galapagos islands, which threatened one of the world's most unique ecosystem reserves. The 1987 forest fires in China were observed because they caused more than 200 deaths and wiped out whole towns and villages.
