f&ae Introduction


In the first decade of the 21st century wildland fire issues dominate the management of many public lands in the West.  It seems new evidence emerges on a daily basis suggesting the challenges posed by wildland fire are likely to be compounded by the effects of climate change.  Wildland fire burns vegetation and alters the landscape but aquatic systems may also be profoundly affected by the direct and indirect effects of fire.  The interaction of wildland fire and aquatic systems was the subject of the first Fire and Aquatic Ecosystems Workshop in 2002.  There is a need for an updated review and synthesis of how fire affects aquatic ecosystems, how it interacts with land, fuel, and fire management decisions, and how a changing climate alters the template on which these interactions occur and decisions are made.
