Analysis of Fire-related Vegetation Patterns in the Huachuca Mountains, Arizona, USA, and Sierra los Ajos, Sonora, Mexico
Pages: 14-33
DOI: 10.4996/fireecology.0401014

There is general interest among fire ecologists to integrate observed fire regimes into long term fire management. The United States-Mexico borderlands provide unique research opportunities to study effects of contrasting forest management activities on forest structure and pattern. To increase understanding of the range of forest stand conditions in borderland ecosystems, we compared tree crown patterns from two forests near the US-Mexico border that are managed under contrasting fire policies and have contrasting fire histories.  [Read More]

Modeling Fire Pathways in Montane Grassland−Forest Ecotones
Pages: 17-32
DOI: 10.4996/fireecology.140117031

Fire plays a key role in regulating the spatial interactions between adjacent vegetation types from the stand to the landscape scale. Fire behavior modeling can facilitate the understanding of these interactions and help managers restore or maintain fire’s natural role. The Valles Caldera National Preserve (VALL), in the Jemez Mountains of northern New Mexico, USA, contains one of the largest montane grasslands in North America and extensive areas of grassland−forest ecotone.  [Read More]
