A Way Forward for Fire-Caused Tree Mortality Prediction: Modeling a Physiological Consequence of Fire
Pages: 80-94
DOI: 10.4996/fireecology.0601080

Current operational methods for predicting tree mortality from fire injury are regression-based models that only indirectly consider underlying causes and, thus, have limited generality. A better understanding of the physiological consequences of tree heating and injury are needed to develop biophysical process models that can make predictions under changing or novel conditions. As an illustration of the benefits that may arise from including physiological processes in models of fire-caused tree mortality, we develop a testable, biophysical hypothesis for explaining pervasive patterns in conifer injury and functional impairment in response to fires.  [Read More]
