Forests are basis of life. They are called lungs of planet. They sustain biodiversity and provide endless products and important resources such as storage of carbon, flood & landslide control, clean supply of water and air, medicines, crops and other ecological services. India occupies just only 2.5% of the global geographical area, 1.8% of the overall forest area and it supports 16% of the total human population of world. In this backdrop forest fires have provided huge damage over the years ravaging ecosystems, communities, and economies. The impacts of forest fires on biodiversity, climate, forest species, and soil characteristics in India are described and various strategies adopted by the government of India in order to detect and control the forest fires are presented.

Keywords: Forest fire, biodiversity, climate change, soil, species, communities
