Tundra fires have important ecological impacts on vegetation, wildlife, permafrost, and carbon cycling, but the pattern and controls of historic tundra fire regimes are poorly understood. We use sediment records from four lakes to develop a 2000-yr...

Increasing private wildfire risk mitigation is an important part of the larger forest restoration policy challenge. Data from an economic experiment are used to evaluate the effectiveness of providing fuel reductions on public land adjacent to private...
Ecosystems driven by wildfire regimes are characterized by fire size distributions resembling power laws. Existing models produce power laws, but their predicted exponents are too high and fail to capture the exponent's variation with geographic...
Boreal ecosystems store 10-20% of global soil carbon and may warm by 4-7ºC over the next century. Higher temperatures could increase the activity of boreal decomposers and indirectly affect decomposition through other ecosystem feedbacks. For example,...
Rangeland extent is an important factor for evaluating critical indicators of rangeland sustainability. Rangeland areal extent was determined for the coterminous United States in a geospatial framework by evaluating spatially explicit data from the...
From the text ... 'Fire suppression doctrine recognizes that, where there is increased empowerment, there is also increased responsibility and accountability.'
From the text ... 'One of the BAER [Burned Area Emergency Response] team's first tasks is to develop a soil burn severity map that highlights the areas of low, moderate, and high burn severity within a wildfire perimeter.'
From the text ... '... Understanding the interplay of factors -- particularly with the most variable one: weather -- can help explain and anticipate fire phenomena, a necessary part of managing an evolving fire situation. Changing our perspective...
From the text ... 'Risk management is on center stage as an example of the shift in culture for fire and aviation managers.'
From the text ... 'A Just Culture asserts that all human factors must be acknowledged and should be open for fair, honest analysis and criticism. If our employees involved in an accident feel that intentional unnecessary risk-taking was acceptable...
