This is a special collection of papers focused on eastern U.S. oak ecosystems. Many of these ecosystems have been influenced by fire for millennia and occurred across gradients from savannas to woodlands to forests. The historical ecology and management of open oak ecosystems continues to be a major line of inquiry. These collected papers represent diverse contributions relating fire to flora, fauna, water, humans, and more. The multiple submission types are the products of the diverse stakeholders and presentations from the 7th Fire in Eastern Oak Forests Conference held in Tyler, Texas, USA on May 16-18, 2023.
