Abstract

The 27 papers in these proceedings are divided into five sections. The first includes an introduction to the symposium theme of Shrublands under Fire, along with a keynote address comparing ecosystem degradation in Iran with current problems in the semi-arid to arid Western United States. The next three sections cluster papers on invasive species, community dynamics and restoration, and fire recovery of shrubland ecosystems. The final section contains descriptions of two field trips; one focusing on the transitional zone between cold and warm desert systems, and the other on Great Basin shrublands and the Desert Experimental Range.
