The Ecology of Smoke is something that has been considered by very few in the United States, despite extensive and intensive interest and research into frequent fire systems. This presentation will review some of the existing science; present some recent data on smoke and seedling emergence in species native to southwestern ponderosa pine forests; and outline the extensive gaps in our current state of knowledge in regards to Smoke Ecology.
