Fire studies with relatively complete descriptions of burned
and unburned vegetation, burning conditions, and fire behavior
can be valuable for managers because information on fire
effects is integrated with site, fire weather, and fire
behavior information. FEIS presents more than 100 such
integrated studies. The Fire Studies are
linked from all relevant species reviews, so you can locate them through
the FEIS species lists or the FEIS search window. You can also use the search
window to find information from these studies on species not reviewed in FEIS.
Fire studies are presented in several formats:
- The Fire Case Study (FCS) focuses on 1 plant or animal species (occasionally 2) and
is summarized within the FEIS species review.
- The Research Project Summary (RPS) provides information about fire
effects on many plant or animal species that has been published in journal articles, theses,
or other publications. The RPS is a stand-alone FEIS document linked from many
- The PDF links to a downloadable version of a
complete research paper that is either in the public domain or that FEIS has obtained permission to reproduce online.
