Evaluating Prescribed Fire Effectiveness Using Permanent Monitoring Plot Data: A Case Study
Pages: 2-25
DOI: 10.4996/fireecology.1203002

Since Euro-American settlement, ponderosa pine forests throughout the western United States have shifted from high fire frequency and open canopy savanna forests to infrequent fire and dense, closed canopy forests. Managers at Zion National Park, USA, reintroduced fire to counteract these changes and decrease the potential for high-severity fires. We analyzed existing permanent monitoring plot data collected between 1995 and 2010 to assess achievement of management objectives related to prescribed fire in ponderosa pine forests.  [Read More]

The Influence of Western Spruce Budworm on Fire in Spruce-Fir Forests
Pages: 16-33
DOI: 10.4996/fireecology.1301016

Western spruce budworm (Choristoneura freemani Razowski; WSBW) is the most significant defoliator of coniferous trees in the western United States. Despite its important influence on Western forests, there are still gaps in our knowledge of WSBW’s impact on fire, and little research has been done on this relationship in high-elevation spruce-fir forests.  [Read More]
