This review presents a multidisciplinary framework for integrating the ecological, regulatory, procedural and technical
aspects of forest management for fi res prevention under Mediterranean environments. The aims are to: i) provide a foreground of
wildfi re scenario; ii) illustrate the theoretical background of forest fuel management; iii) describe the available fuel management techniques
and mechanical operations for fi re prevention in forest and wildland-urban interfaces, with exemplifi cation of case-studies; iv)allocate fi re prevention activities under the hierarchy of forest planning. The review is conceived as an outline commentary discussion targeted to professionals, technicians and government personnel involved in forestry and environmental management.
