From the Summary ... 'In this paper, we have presented the historical and ecological role of fire in Lava Beds National Monument. Based on fire's role, management objectives, sensitive areas, and the potential use of prescribed burning, we have outlined a fire management plan for the monument. A detailed plan is being prepared, and modifications to it will be made as better data are developed.'
