Description

Editorial comment ... 'In this wide-ranging essay, Stephen Pyne, the preeminent historian of wildfire around the world, explores the past, present, and future of the term 'wildland-urban interface' and the policies regarding fire in that setting. He argues that, while we need to remove fire from the urban side of the interface, we also need to boost it on the wildland side.'
