Ecosystem conditions on Federal public lands have changed, particularly within the last 30 years. Wildfires in the west have increased to levels close to or above those estimated for historical conditions, despite increasing efforts and expertise in...
Fire Behavior Portal
The fire behavior topic page contains resources and activities related to the study and management of the direction, spread and intensity of wildland fire.
Wildland Fire Library (firelibrary.org)
The Wildland Fire Library (firelibrary.org) is a collection of long-term assessments, fire progressions, fire behavior reports, and other documents and resources to support fire modeling and assessment of long-duration fires. Each file is tied to some event with a location, a start date, and background information. This site is operated by Rick Stratton and Jim Edmonds of the USFS National Office.

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.
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.
