    Citation: Fire Ecology 2013 9:9020080
  7. While fire is widely recognized as an important factor shaping sagebrush (Artemisia spp.) ecosystems, little is known about the role other natural events play in these systems. Using a state-and-transition modeli...

    Citation: Fire Ecology 2013 9:9020057
  8. Forest fires contribute a significant amount of CO2 to the atmosphere each year, and CO2 emissions from fires are likely to increase under projected conditions of global climate change. In addition to volatilizin...

    Authors: Katherine Heckman, John Campbell, Heath Powers, Beverly Law and Chris Swanston
    Citation: Fire Ecology 2013 9:9020040
  9. As the large scale of fuel treatments needed to promote ecosystem health and reduce heavy fuel loads becomes clear in California’s mixed conifer forests, managers are beginning to focus on how to scale up pres...

    Authors: Rick J. Sneeuwjagt, Tim S. Kline and Scott L. Stephens
    Citation: Fire Ecology 2013 9:9020014
  10. The ability to document the frequency, extent, and severity of fires in wetlands, as well as the dynamics of post-fire wetland land cover, informs fire and wetland science, resource management, and ecosystem p...

    Authors: John W. Jones, Annette E. Hall, Ann M. Foster and Thomas J. Smith III
    Citation: Fire Ecology 2013 9:9010133
  11. Ecotones are areas of sharp environmental gradients between two or more homogeneous vegetation types. They are a dynamic aspect of all landscapes and are also responsive to climate change. Shifts in the positi...

    Citation: Fire Ecology 2013 9:9010066
  12. Canebrakes are monodominant stands of cane (Arundinaria gigantea [Walter] Muhl.), a bamboo native to and once prominent in the southeastern USA. Canebrakes were important wildlife habitat within the bottomland ha...

    Citation: Fire Ecology 2013 9:9010055
  13. Within the marl prairie grasslands of the Florida Everglades, USA, the combined effects of fire and flooding usually lead to very significant changes in tree island structure and composition. Depending on fire...

    Citation: Fire Ecology 2013 9:9010038
  14. Fire is a major determinant of the global carbon (C) balance. While it is known that C is lost through organic matter combustion, the effect fire has on soil C biogeochemistry is unclear. Studies investigating...

    Citation: Fire Ecology 2013 9:9010021
  15. Aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx.) comprises only a small fraction (1 %) of the Sierra Nevada landscape, yet contributes significant biological diversity to this range. In an effort to rejuvenate declining aspen ...

    Citation: Fire Ecology 2012 8:8030104
  16. An isolated population of bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis nelsoni) occupies fire-adapted chaparral ranges in the San Gabriel Mountains, California, USA. During 1976 to 2006, the amount of high-suitability habitat ...
