Fire alters environmental condition of bacteria such as temperature, oxygen, carbon dioxide, water and soil pH. However, certain bacteria grow significantly after fire, such as phosphate solvent bacteria Fig. It is triggered by the increasing phosphate content in peat after fire. In addition, phosphate solvent bacteria such as Bacillus sp. On the contrary, bacteria of Lactobacillus and Rhizobium decreased after fire Wiratama, Fire effects in soil biota is a complex phenomenon, depends on interaction among soil characteristics.
The important indicator to assess fire impacts on soil characteristics is condition of litter, fermentation and humus layers or duff layer. Those layers play very important role to protect soil surface. When duff layer destroy heavily by fire, soil layer below will have serious impacts. As consequences, soil biota will be killed, including their function will be loss. Therefore, fire severity from post fire soil condition point of view is mostly affected by fire intensity which is indicated by litter and duff layers condition.
Fire effects on tropical forest biodiversity varies from low to high magnitude. To vegetation, direct effects of firemay kill plants and cause injury. Indirect effects of fire to vegetation including open wound which attract pest and disease attack. On the other hand, fire alters forest structure and composition by increasing diversity of forest under storey and seedling.
Furthermore, diversity of soil macrofauna decreased after fire eventhough, in some cases, new families of macrofauna appeared after fire. Fire may decrease certain bacteria such as Lactobacillus and Rhizobium but increased phosphate solvent bacteria. The magnitude of fire effects on tropical forest biodiversity is influenced by several factors, namely: fire intensity, fire severity, soil type s, post fire precipitation and burned area. Besides, fire adaptive soil biota may have benefit to improve soil characteristics. Furthermore, fire prevention is a priority effort in forest fire control when protection of tropical biodiversity is a must.
