Summary

In August 1990, a fire ravaged 8,400 hectares of forest and scrubland in the western part of the Massif des Maures (Var department, France) that consists of metamorphic rocks with a humid Mediterranean type climate. Research teams involved in the representative and experimental watershed (BVRE) of the Réal Collobrier studied the effects of the fire on plant cover, hydrology, agronomic characteristics of the soils, the chemical composition of water, solution exportations and mechanical erosion phenomena. This document presents an overview of this multi-disciplinary research that focused primarily on the gneissic watershed of the Rimbaud (1.46 km²).
