Short summary
The severity and the extent of a large fire event that occurred on the small volcanic island of Stromboli (Aeolian archipelago, Italy) on 25–26 May 2022 were evaluated through remotely sensed data to assess the short-term effect of fire on local plant communities. For the first time, we documented the outstanding after-fire resilience of an invasive alien species, Saccharum biflorum, which is a rhizomatous C4 perennial grass introduced on the island in the nineteenth century.
