A growing body of wildfire research indicates that populations will support or enact different programs, policies and planning approaches to better 'live with wildfire.' This presentation builds on one existing conceptual approach for characterizing local socio-ecological conditions that influence how and why populations might adapt differently to changing wildfire conditions. The presentation concludes with a call for wildfire social science to reconsider the value of understanding adaptation as a process, and to diversify assessment of progress toward national goals of 'fire adapted communities' by considering how wildfire management best responds to local conditions.
