The following list of fire research topics and questions were generated by a survey of personnel from agencies and organizations within AWFCG in 2003. The topics were prioritized as High, Medium, or Low by the AWFCG Fire Research, Development and...
Two different storms started the Black Hills and Fish Lakes Fires on the Tetlin NWR. The Black Hills fire was started by lightning on July 16th. The Fish Lake Fire was first sighted on July 29th, probably resulting from lighting on July 21st. These two...
'Painting, architecture, politics, even gardening and golf-all have their critics and commentators,' observes Stephen Pyne. 'Fire does not.' Aside from news reports on fire disasters, most writing about fire appears in government reports and scientific...
From the text ... 'This chapter focuses on the practical, management implications of the fire and climate change research that is reported in the earlier chapters of this volume. We start with an overview of fire management goals and strategies,...
From the text ... 'Our experience in conducting fire history studies comes from regions with natural lakes and wetlands. Lake sites are used for most stratigraphic fire history studies, and our understanding of charcoal deposition and burial (i.e...
Climate change affects forests both directly and indirectly through disturbances. Disturbances are a natural and integral part of forest ecosystems, and climate change can alter these natural interactions. When disturbances exceed their natural range...
It has been recently suggested that droughts induced by climate warming reduce the catchment export of colour-forming, and therefore, UV-B protective, DOC to boreal lakes, which in turn may influence the health of resident biota. We determined that the...
Elevated CO2 increases root growth and fine (diam. £2 mm) root growth across a range of species and experimental conditions. However, there is no clear evidence that elevated CO2 changes the proportion of C allocated to root biomass, measured as either...
