From the Conclusions (p.222) ... 'Given the uncertainties regarding future climatic conditions and fire regimes, fire management techniques should be developed that avoid transporting or facilitating the movement of nonnative plant propagules between different environments. Nonnative plants that are currently not invasive in particular local plant communities may become so in the future. Regionally organized programs of native seed collection, propagation, and storage for postfire restoration projects will help discourage the seeding of nonnative plants.'
