An effective mechanism for wildland fire technology and information
A large experimental prescribed burn near Fairbanks.
The project is in terrain dominated by permafrost, and focuses on
the large-scale ecological consequences of fire.
This site contains a wealth of information about the science of monitoring
wildland fires and their effects on the environment around the world.
Fire Management & Research
Nature Conservancy's National Fire Management Program oversees fire
management on TNC preserves nationwide, fosters fire ecology research,
and promotes the judicious use of prescribed fire to meet biodiversity
conservation needs through publications, information exchange, and
fire policy reviews. The Fire Program also provides prescribed fire
training for TNC staff and cooperators.
