Fig. A1. Sensitivity analysis depicting the response curves for three distance thresholds defining fire perimeters as LIMITING or NOT LIMITING subsequent fire spread. These thresholds represent smaller (250 and 500 m, as measured outwards and inwards, respectively, from the subsequent fire perimeter; black line) and larger (500 and 1000 m, as measured outwards and inwards, respectively, from the subsequent fire perimeter; blue line) thresholds than those used in our study (red line). The horizontal dashed line represents the probability at which wildland fire no longer acts as an effective fuel break (see Methods).
