Special Topics - Fire Ecology & Eco-System Management


This seminar course explores the science of fire ecology and ecosystem management. It focuses on fire as a management tool, including the effects of fire on plant and animal communities, fire weather, fuel types and models, and fire behavior. We will examine the history of wildland fire in New England with optional field trips to investigate the signs of past fires. Students will develop a fire burn plan as part of the course.
