Wildfires around the globe

Hot, dry weather, particularly across Europe, has left many areas of forest and woodland vulnerable to fires.

Much of southern Europe has experienced a hot and very dry summer. These images show one of the effects of this drought - wildfires.

Although these wildfires often have a human cause, being started either deliberately or accidentally, they are part of a natural cycle. The destruction of mature trees allows new growth to take place and for dead wood to be cleared.
