From the text ... 'Wildland fire research has done much to contribute to our current understanding of the behavior of crowning forest fires through laboratory experiments, outdoor experimental burning, numerical modeling, and wildfire case histories. Presumably, the future holds similar promise, provided we are readily willing to admit what we still do not know about crown fires with respect to their environment, characteristics, and prediction. Several major research needs were in fact identified during a recent synthesis of knowledge on crown fire behavior (Alexander and others 2013a).'
