             abstract = "Wildfires play a key role in the ecology of savannas. The 
                         Brazilian savannas (Cerrado biome), where the extension of burned 
                         areas and amount of fires can be more numerous than in the Amazon, 
                         is frequently burned due to natural fires or land-use and 
                         land-cover (LULC) changes. Thus, we aimed to understand the 
                         occurrence and the dynamics of fires in the Cerrado using active 
                         fire, burned area, precipitation, vegetation condition, estimated 
                         using the Vegetation Condition Index (VCI), and LULC data derived 
                         from orbital sensors. Results show that the Cerrado was, 
                         respectively, the second and first Brazilian biome for the 
                         occurrence of hotspots and burned area, which are concentrated 
                         during the dry season (May to September), especially in September, 
                         when the annual deficit in precipitation and extreme vegetation 
                         conditions reached maximum indices. Higher densities of hotspots 
                         concentrated in the Northern of the biome, while 75 % of the 
                         occurrences were found in the natural remnants of the Cerrado. 
                         Totals of hotspots and burned area were higher in years of lower 
                         precipitation, such as 2007 and 2010. Spatial correlations showed 
                         that hotspots and burned area are better correlated with 
                         precipitation than vegetation condition, especially in the Central 
                         North and Northeast of the Cerrado.",
