Worldwide fire regimes are expected to shift as a result of climate change. Predicting when, where, and how these fire regime changes will occur requires an understanding of the climatic controls of fire at differing temporal and spatial scales. This research uses past climate-fire relationships to predict 21st-century fire regime changes across Alaskan boreal forest and tundra ecosystems at a range of temporal and spatial scales, providing insight into when, where, and how future fire regimes may change.
