The South Western Australian Floristic Region (SWAFR) is an area with high biodiversity and species endemism. Numerous granite outcrops within the area provide specialised ecosystems for these endemic plants that are under threat by changes to the fire regime. This study reviews a fire on Mt Cooke in 2003. Using remote sensing and GIS, the fire is studied in relation to vegetation and fire indices to assess the fire severity and studies if the topography affected the fire severity. The vegetation recovery is monitored for ten years post-fire to assess recovery rates.
