Description

From the Executive Summary (p.iv) ... 'A coordinated program of research on the 1988 fires should be intiated immediately. The essential ingredients for such a program include an ecosystem approach to provide conceptual integration and operational coordination of many individual research projects, a landscape approach utilizing geographic information systems, and provision for long-term studies and monitoring of key system features and processes. The Yellowstone fires do not simply provide another place to study the ecological consequences of fire. Rather, their uniqueness lies in their heterogeneity and scale, and in their significance to the future wilderness management.'
