Fire climate, which may be thought of as the synthesis of daily fire weather over a long period of time, is a dominant factor in fire-control planning. In a broad sense, climate is the major factor in determining the amount and kind of vegetation growing in an area, and this vegetation makes up the fuels available for wildland fires.

This volume contains a selection of scientific papers which were presented at an international workshop held in Wengen, Switzerland, in September 1998. A number of state-of-the-art papers are presented, which discuss scientific, technological and socio...
It is almost dogma that the boreal forest in North America is a fire dependent forest, yet ecologists often do not consider in any technical detail how forests fires produce effects on individual plants and on plant populations. Consequently, the...
A discussion of the direct and indirect mechanisms by which fire and climate interact to influence carbon cycling in North American boreal forests. The first section summarizes the information needed to understand and manage fires' effects on the...

This state-of-knowledge review about the effects of fire on flora and fuels can assist land managers with ecosystem and fire management planning and in their efforts to inform others about the ecological role of fire. Chapter topics include fire regime...
The objective of this study is to determine the level of support Florida residents ascribe to three alternative fuel reduction techniques given location to recent large-scale wildfire events and differences in ethnicity and/or language. Gaps in...
There is currently debate on appropriate target conditions for fire hazard reduction and forest restoration. This is due to the lack of unmanaged forests that could serve as references in the western US. The pine-dominated, mixed-conifer forests of...
Wayne Harrison was a leader and innovator, working for decades in fire ecology and prescribed fire. As a lasting contribution to the fire ecology and management community, Wayne's family partnered with the Association for Fire Ecology (AFE) after his passing in June 2019 to create the Wayne Harrison Memorial Scholarship to support the academic and professional growth of students through funding research, management, or education projects related to wildland fire science.
Scholarships up to $2,500 will be awarded annually, with applications due March 31 and awarded by May 31.
The Australian Citizen Science Association is conducting a Citizen Science Bushfire Response Project Audit to gather information on research projects that include bushfire/forest/wildfire as their focus and citizen science as part of their methodologies.
Scientists with expertise in climate, weather, and fire science in Australia are asked to consider signing an open letter detailing the science between climate change and fires in Australia.
