The response of a Mediterranean ecosystem to fire is summarized in this paper. The results were obtained over a 3‐year period at sites with a known fire history on Mt Carmel, Israel. The results give some idea of the complexity and variability of the ecosystem response to fire, and about factors that could determine these responses. It also shows how fire increases species and landscape diversity.
