New data from the Joint Fire Science Program

The Joint Fire Science Program has posted some new "Fire Science Briefs" on their web site.
Some of the new ones include:
  • How Does a Sierran Forest Grow? Fire, Thinning, and Regenerating Trees
  • Searching, Witnessing, Testing: Plants and Fire in Southern California
  • All Fired Up: Whitebark Pines are Crucial in the Cascades and Beyond
  • In a Ponderosa Pine Forest, Prescribed Fires Reduce the Likelihood of Scorched Earth
  • Earth and Fire: Forest Rely on Healthy Soils for a Well-rounded Diet
  • Something In the Air: Climate, Fire, and Ponderosa Pine in Southwestern Colorado
  • When Chaparral and Coastal Sage Scrub Burn: Consequences for Mammals, Management and More
Next week they will add several research publications under their "Science You Can Use" section, including:
  • Southern Beetles: Effects of Prescribed Fire and Fire Surrogates on Saproxylic Coleoptera in the Southern Appalachians of North Carolina
  • Black Hills: Can Prescribed Fire Be Used to Maintain Fuel Treatment Effectiveness Over Time in Black Hills Ponderosa Pine Forests?
  • Alaska: Fire History and Fire Management Implications in the Yukon Flats National Wildlife Refuge, Interior Alaska
  • Postfire Valuations for BAER: Nonmarket Resource Valuation in the Postfire Environment
  • Southwest: Fuel Loadings in Forests, Woodlands, and Savannas of the Madrean Province
  • Cheatgrass: Fire, Native Species, and Soil Resource Interactions Influence the Spatio-temporal Invasion Pattern of Bromus tectorum
  • Wildland Fire Suppression Costs: Factors Influencing Large Wildland Fire Suppression Expenditures
  • Burn Probability: Evaluating Spatially-Explicit Burn Probabilities for Strategic Fire Management Planning
  • Interior West Fuel Treatments: Objectives and Considerations for Wildland Fuel Treatment in Forested Ecosystems of the Interior Western United States
  • Shrubland Proceedings: Shrublands Under Fire: Disturbance and Recovery in a Changing World
