A collection of papers presented at the Ninth International Synmposium on Society and Resource Management highlight research findings from studies supported by the National Fire Plan. These studies focus on the human dimensions of wildfire, and look at the perceptions and actions of individuals, homeowners, and communities as they try to make sense of, live with, and be proactive about wildfire management.
