Fires play a key role in the evolution, distribution and organization of ecosystems, particularly in Pinus Halepensis forests. The Mediterranean ecosystem of Mt. Carmel is subjected to increasing number of forest fires, some of which occur in areas that have been previously burnt.
 
The study aimed at assessing the effect of recurrent burnings on the regeneration and the spatial distribution of Pinus halepensis, as reflected by the number of trees in 18 sites, differing by the number of previous fires and time lapses since last burning.
