A panel perspective on regeneration in Southwest pine forests after high severity wildfire --The Southwest Fire Science Consortium is hosting a panel discussion on regeneration of pine forests after high severity wildfires. Recent fires such as the 2011 Las Conchas Fire have created large (> 10,000 acres) patches where high severity fire killed all trees and limited the seed source for returning pine trees to the area. These large patches have raised the fear that uncharacteristic fires may convert large areas of pine forest to other vegetation such as oak brush. The goal of the webinar is to foster discussion about post-fire regeneration and help identify what the existing research indicates, what projects currently underway will contribute, and what research questions need to be addressed. The webinar will start with brief presentations by a range of researchers and experts on the topic.
