Forest ecosystems are subject to the actions, often negative, of external biotic or abiotic factors, and are forest fires are among them.
Vegetation fires can cause air pollution in the areas where they occur. Thus, they can induce the production of carbon, which causes an increase in the amount of carbon dioxide. It also promotes air pollution with suspended particles, especially fine particles. An increased level of combustion products in the troposphere can raise ozone levels beyond safety limits.
