This study was undertaken during the summers of 1949 to 1952 to provide a better understanding of the ecological effects of forest fires in the Alaska interior. The information sought related primarily to the effects of forest fires on vegetation, but effects on soils, fur-bearers, big game and hydrology were included. Fieldwork extended from the Kenai Peninsula on the south to the Yukon River valley on the north.
