The FMI Information Team recently completed a project for the Joint Fire Science Program to update and increase the information available in the Fire Effects Information System (FEIS). FEIS literature reviews covering 93 taxa were completely rewritten, and reviews covering 89 taxa were added to the system. Eight of these reviews cover nonnative plant species, including the invasives buffelgrass (Pennisetum ciliare) and molasses grass (Melinis minutiflora). In addition to the species reviews, 23 Research Project Summaries (RPSs) and 4 Fire Case Studies were added to the system. The new RPSs supplement fire effects information in 256 species reviews and also offer fire effects information on 355 species not reviewed in FEIS.
