The aim of this paper is to analyse the relationship between fire incidence and land degradation (LD) and their potential feedbacks in Sardinia during two reference periods, 1990 and 2000. Results indicated that in areas already affected by high LD vulnerability there is a sort of LD-fire spiralling connection that can be seen as a "mutual early-warning system" with strong implications on fire prevention strategies and landscape quality status monitoring
