The aim of this study is to assess the information from global fire experiments with particular reference to the impact of long-term fire trials on vegetation, and to illustrate the inherent concepts in a long-term fire experiment in Zimbabwe which was sited at the Marondera Grassland Research Station and ran from 1953 to 1991. Some of the preliminary results on the impact of fire on vegetation are analysed and compared with further vegetation surveys in 2007. Fire also affected the composition of the herbaceous plant community, but not the number of species
