The 2nd Meeting of the MedWildFireLab - Global Change Impacts on Wildland Fire Behaviour and Uses in Mediterranean Forest Ecosystems, towards a « wall less » Mediterranean Wildland Fire Laboratory project was held on May 15th of 2015, at the Institute of Mediterranean Forest Ecosystems, Athens, Greece.

The meeting was preceded by a field trip to the Attica Peninsula on May 13th. During this trip the participants visited forest areas that have burned in the last few years.
