From the Foreword ... 'Prescribed burning is being used in the Southwest to reduce fuel hazards, to manipulate plant cover, and for general cleanup. Since many people have been burning a variety of fuels, at different times and for various reasons, much valuable data has accumulated that should be recorded and made available to responsible land managers. For this reason, the Southwest Interagency Fire Council has undertaken this publication.
