Evaluating effects of climate change on whitebark pine trees.
Lick Creek Demonstration-Research Forest: 25-year fire and cutting effects on vegetation and fuels.
The impact of fire on conifer defenses.
Mortality reconsidered: Testing and extending models of fire–induced tree mortality across the United States.
Changes in fuel loading and conifer mortality risk factors due to bark beetles and drought in California.
Wildland fires emit significant amounts of greenhouse gases, particulate matter, and ozone precursors. This can have a significant negative effect on public health at multiple scales.
FPARDY (Fuel PARticle DYnamics), is one of many new efforts to explore surface fuel characteristics at the particle, layer, and fuelbed levels across major forest ecosystem types in the US northern Rocky Mountains (NRM) to develop a set of products that integrate these findings into standard fuel applications.
Wildfire smoke can trigger severe pollution episodes with substantial impacts on public health.
The ecological, economic and health and safety concerns surrounding wildland fires are driving the need to better understand climate-fire interactions.
