Truffle Abundance in Recently Prescribed Burned and Unburned Forests in Yosemite National Park: Implications for Mycophagous Mammals
Pages: 105-114
DOI: 10.4996/fireecology.0402105

Truffles are an important food resource for wildlife in North American forests, but decades of fire exclusion have altered the availability of this resource. In Yosemite National Park, resource management policies seek to restore essential forest processes such as fire while minimizing adverse ecological impacts that may result from burning decades of accumulated fuels.  [Read More]

Giant Sequoia Regeneration in Groves Exposed to Wildfire and Retention Harvest
Pages: 2-16
DOI: 10.4996/fireecology.0702002

Both wildland fire and mechanical harvest have been proposed to achieve ecological restoration goals in giant sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum [Lindl.] Buchholz) groves of the southern Sierra Nevada, but their effectiveness on giant sequoia regeneration has received little attention. In the summer of 2010, we examined giant sequoia regeneration in four groves subjected to: 1) moderate- to high-severity wildfire in 1987 (Case Mountain, Redwood Mountain groves), 2) low-severity wildfire in 2008 (Black Mountain grove), 3) retention harvest (removal of all trees except large-diameter giant sequoia) followed by prescribed burning in the mid-1980s (Black Mountain, Bearskin groves), and 4) nearby unburned and unharvested (control) stands in all groves.  [Read More]

Principles of Effective USA Federal Fire Management Plans
Pages: 59-83
DOI: 10.4996/fireecology.1102059

Federal fire management plans are essential implementation guides for the management of wildland fire on federal lands.  Recent changes in federal fire policy implementation guidance and fire science information suggest the need for substantial changes in federal fire management plans of the United States.  Federal land management agencies are also undergoing land management planning efforts that will initiate revision of fire management plans across the country.  [Read More]
