Citation: Brown, P. M., M. W. Kaye, L. S. Huckaby, and C. H. Baisan. 2001. Fire history along environmental gradients in the Sacramento Mountains, New Mexico: influences of local patterns and regional processes. Ecoscience, v. 8, no. 1, p. 115-126.


The authors reconstructed the historical fire regime along a gradient of forest types in the Sacramento Mountains, New Mexico to determine the influences of regional climate and local human land use across different spatiotemporal scales.

Citation: Donnegan, Joseph A.; Veblen, Thomas T.; Sibold, Jason S. 2001. Climatic and human influences on fire history in Pike National Forest, central Colorado. Canadian Journal of Forest Research 31(9):1526-1539.


The authors examined historic relationships between interannual and multidecadal climate variability, specifically moisture variability, and fire regimes as well as the effects of changes in human land-use practices.

Citation: Flannigan, Michael D.; Stocks, Brian J.; Wotton, B. Michael. 2000. Climate change and forest fires. Science of The Total Environment 262(3):221-229.


This article reviews the literature on climate change and its effects on forest fires in the U.S. The authors also used the seasonal severity rating (SSR) to estimate future fire severity over the next century across North America under two general circulation models (GCMs), the Hadley Centre and the Canadian GCMs.

Citation: Grissino Mayer, Henri D.; Swetnam, Thomas W. 2000. Century scale climate forcing of fire regimes in the American southwest. The Holocene 10(2):213-220.


The authors examined climate-fire relationships across seasonal and century-long time scales within the unique volcanic landscape of El Malpais National Monument.

Citation: Weng, Chengyu; Jackson, Stephen T. 1999. Late Glacial and Holocene vegetation history and paleoclimate of the Kaibab Plateau, Arizona. Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology, Palaeoecology 153(1-4):179-201.


The authors reconstructed fire history since the Late Glacial based on pollen and plant macrofossil records and sedimentary deposits at two lakes on the Kaibab Plateau and analyzed the relationships between climate, vegetation and fire of the Holocene.

Citation: Fulé, Peter Z.; Covington, W. Wallace; Moore, Margaret M. 1997. Determining reference conditions for ecosystem management of southwestern ponderosa pine forests. Ecological Applications 7(3):895-908.


The authors reconstructed the fire regime and forest structure of a southwestern ponderosa pine forest prior to Euro-American settlement to determine a set of reference conditions as a baseline for ecosystem management.

Citation: Bessie, Wayne C.; Johnson, Edward A. 1995. The relative importance of fuels and weather on fire behavior in subalpine forests. Ecology 76(3):747-762.


The authors used Rothermel’s 1972 and Van Wagner’s 1977 fire models to predict surface fire intensity and crown fire initiation using fuel data from upland subalpine conifer forest stands using daily weather variables. They used this information to determine the relative importance of fuel components versus weather components on fire behavior.

Citation: Price, Colin; Rind, David. 1994. The impact of a 2 x CO2 climate on lightning-caused fire. Journal of Climate 7(10):1484-1494.


The authors modeled the potential shift in the frequency and intensity of lightning-caused fires and thunderstorm activity based on future climate scenarios of 2 X CO2 across the forested areas of the southwestern U.S.

Citation: Wotton, B. Mike; Flannigan, Michael D. 1993. Length of the fire season in a changing climate. The Forestry Chronicle 69(2):187-192.


The authors modeled the potential shift in fire season length based on future climate scenarios of 1 X CO2 and 2 X CO2 across the forested areas of Canada.

Citation: Swetnam, Thomas W.; Betancourt, Julio L. 1990. Fire-southern oscillation relations in the southwestern United States. Science 249(4972):1017-1020.


The authors correlated fire scars and tree-ring growth to assess potential relationships between fire and climate across pine forest ecosystems in the Southwest.
