In the high-altitude savannahs, fires have a negative impact on forests where they degrade the forest edges and undergrowth and also reduce the natural habitat of endemic species. This is particularly the case with late season fires. The dynamics of fires in the savannahs of the Nimba Massif are still poorly understood. It is therefore essential to implement a bushfire management strategy using satellite images.
