A critical issue in landscape ecology is to understand the effects of disturbances on landscape processes. While there is increasing interest in examining the ecological consequences associated with changes in landscape structure and composition,...
In April 1995, the USDA Forest Service conducted a prescribed burn along with a south-facing slope of southern Appalachian watershed, Nantahala National Forest, western NC. Fire had been excluded for over 70 years and the purpose of the burn was to...
Fire exclusion policies over the last 100 years have increased the amount of fuel in many forested ecosystems throughout the United States. Government agencies, forest managers, and landowners agree these fuels must be treated, but the ecological...
In the winter-spring of 2001, South Florida experienced one of the worst droughts in its recorded history. Out of a myriad of ecological concerns identified during this time, the potential for catastrophic peat fire and negative impacts to wading bird...
Down woody materials (DWMs) are an important part of forest ecosystems for wildlife habitat, carbon storage, structural diversity, wildfire hazard, and other large-scale ecosystem processes. To better manage forests for DWMs, available and easily...
We evaluated the relationship between crown cover measured with a vertical sight tube and stand basal area per acre in treated (thinned, burned, and thinned and burned) and untreated interior ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa P. & C. Lawson) stands...
The fungal community inhabiting large woody roots of healthy conifers has not been well documented. To provide more information about such communities, a survey was conducted using increment cores from the woody roots of symptomless Douglas-fir (...
With multiple agencies/entities, groups and task forces all working to find solutions for operational concerns surrounding the coronavirus pandemic, the need for a space to share information is apparent. This forum serves as a platform to ask questions, as well as to share ideas, information, and solutions.

Position: The incumbent leads a small crew in the collection and processing of data for scientific research conducted by the Fire and Environmental Research Applications Team at the USFS Pacific Wildland Fire Sciences Lab. There are multiple existing projects for field data collection. Projects include, but are not limited to, characterization of wildland fuels in multiple locations throughoutthe United States (including the southeastern and western US); evaluation of fuel consumption during prescribed burns, and post-fire tree damage inventory. This data will be used to assess fuels modeling methods, and evaluate the overall predictive capability of fuels and fire behavior models. Data collection includes identification and physical measurements of trees, shrubs, understory plants, downed woody debris, litter, and ground fuels, and collection of fuel samples for laboratory processing.
