This review of issues concerning forest fires (mostly natural fires) includes the analysis of the conditions and scales of forest fires and their effect on the environment, showing itself in changes in the underlying surface properties and surface processes, as well as variations in the atmospheric chemical composition. Particular emphasis is placed on the effect of forest fires on the carbon cycle and the role of forest fires as a factor of environmental dynamics.
