  • Spatial trends identified a few ecozones (taiga plains, taiga shield, boreal shield, and boreal plains; see Wiken [46] for definitions) that accounted for the majority (88%) of total area burned between 1959 and 1997, primarily because these ecozones have a continental climate that is conducive to extreme fire danger conditions and have large uninhabited areas with low values-at-risk, so fires are allowed to burn unimpeded [47].

  • Similar climate changes may explain peatland expansion in the late Holocene within both boreal and tundra ecozones [42].
