Citation: Gartner, Meredith H.; Veblen, Thomas T.; Sherriff, Rosemary L.; Schoennagel, Tania L. 2012. Proximity to grasslands influences fire frequency and sensitivity to climate variability in ponderosa pine forests of the Colorado Front Range. International Journal of Wildland Fire 21(5):562-571.


The authors examined the relationship between fire frequency in ponderosa pine forests and their proximity to grassland and shrubland sites as well as the sensitivity to climate variation also related to the adjacency to these sites.

Citation: Ireland, Kathryn B.; Stan, Amanda B.; Fulé, Peter Z. 2012. Bottom-up control of a northern Arizona ponderosa pine forest fire regime in a fragmented landscape. Landscape Ecology 27(7):983-997.


The authors investigated the relative influence of top-down climate controls versus bottom-up vegetation controls on the timing and spatial pattern of fire in a historically fragmented and patchy ponderosa pine landscape.

Citation: Moritz, Max A.; Parisien, Marc-André; Batllori, Enric; Krawchuk, Meg A.; Van Dorn, Jeff; Ganz, David J.; Hayhoe, Katharine. 2012. Climate change and disruptions to global fire activity. Ecosphere 3(6):art49


The authors derived future fire probability at a 0.5° resolution from a range of global climate models. Climate variables consisted of precipitation, the precipitation of the driest month, temperature seasonality, the mean temperature of the wettest month, and the mean temperature of the warmest month.

Citation: Honig, Kristen A.; Fulé, Peter Z. 2012. Simulating effects of climate change and ecological restoration on fire behaviour in a south-western USA ponderosa pine forest. International Journal of Wildland Fire 21(6):731-742.


The authors simulated future fire behavior and forest structure under two future climate scenarios as well as the potential effects of restoration treatments on a stand in the Kaibab National Forest, Arizona, U.S.

Citation: Litschert, Sandra E.; Brown, Thomas C.; Theobald, David M. 2012. Historic and future extent of wildfires in the Southern Rockies Ecoregion, USA. Forest Ecology and Management 269:124-133.


The authors reconstructed the historic wildfire regime within the Southern Rockies Ecoregion and developed a model to both predict historic fire extent and project potential future fire extent under two climate change global circulation model scenarios, A2 (projects high increases in temperature) and B1 (projects lower temperature increases).

Citation: Hoffman, Chad M.; Sieg, Carolyn Hull; McMillin, Joel D.; Fulé, Peter Z. 2012. Fuel loadings 5 years after a bark beetle outbreak in south-western USA ponderosa pine forests. International Journal of Wildland Fire 21(3):306-312.


The authors quantified surface and canopy fuel structure and loading of ponderosa pine stands five years after a bark beetle outbreak.

Citation: Krawchuk, Meg A.; Moritz, Max A. 2011. Constraints on global fire activity vary across a resource gradient. Ecology 92(1):121-132.


The authors examined the potential relationship between global fire activity and biomass resource availability based on monthly soil moisture metrics before and during the fire season. They also examined the efficacy of a potential global fire weather metric, anomaly in mean monthly 500 hPa geopotential height.

Citation: Hessl, Amy E. 2011. Pathways for climate change effects on fire: models, data, and uncertainties. Progress in Physical Geography 35(3):393-407.


This article reviews models and fire-history studies of climate change and fire and proposes three potential pathways of how climate may affect fire regimes.

Citation: Crimmins, Michael A. 2011. Interannual to decadal changes in extreme fire weather event frequencies across the southwestern United States. International Journal of Climatology 31(11):1573-1583.


The authors examined the influence of the El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO) on daily fire weather variability and extreme fire weather events.

Citation: Westerling, Anthony L.; Turner, Monica G.; Smithwick, Erica A.H.; Romme, William H.; Ryan, Michael G. 2011. Continued warming could transform Greater Yellowstone fire regimes by mid-21st Century. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences 108(32):13165-13170.


The authors projected how large fire (> 200 ha) occurrence, size, and spatial location may be affected by climate change in the forests of the Greater Yellowstone area.
