    Australia's experience of bushfire in changing environmental, economic and social circumstances raises the need for learning to live with fire risk more effectively. But just what might it mean to coexist with fire? Rather than addressing the particular risk contexts created on fire grounds during fire events, this brief commentary considers the need to rescale questions of coexistence with fire and to reconsider just what coexistence with and adaptations to fire risk in Australian landscapes might mean.
