Publications in Fire Ecology

Pages: 1-2

Fire is a primary change agent in many terrestrial ecosystems. Appreciation is growing for the essential role fire plays in fire-adapted ecosystems. Nevertheless, humans living in the wildland urban interface (WUI) understandably regard fires as a threat to their safety, their property, or the natural resources and ecosystem services upon which they depend. As land development has expanded into the WUI, so has the demand for better spatial information regarding fire danger and fire effects, both short- and long-term.  [Read More]

Factors Associated with the Severity of Intersecting Fires in Yosemite National Park, California, USA
Pages: 11-31
DOI: 10.4996/fireecology.0801011

In 1972, Yosemite National Park established a wilderness fire zone in which lightning fires were allowed to run their courses under prescribed conditions.  This zone was expanded in 1973 to include the 16 209 ha Illilouette Creek basin, just to the southeast of Yosemite Valley.  From 1973 through 2011, there have been 157 fires in the basin.  [Read More]

Limits to Ponderosa Pine Regeneration Following Large High-Severity Forest Fires in the United States Southwest
Pages: 143-163
DOI: 10.4996/fireecology.140114316

High-severity fires in dry conifer forests of the United States Southwest have created large (>1000 ha) treeless areas that are unprecedented in the regional historical record. These fires have reset extensive portions of Southwestern ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Lawson & C. Lawson var. scopulorum Engelm.) forest landscapes. At least two recovery options following high-severity fire are emerging. One option is for post-fire successional pathways to move toward a return to the pre-fire forest type. Alternatively, an area may transition to persistent non-forested ecosystems.  [Read More]
