Title: Fire Regimes and Fuel Treatments: A Synthesis with Manager Feedback

Project Proposal Abstract: Objectives 1) To synthesize, in one document, existing information on historic fire regimes in the US; 2) To document fuel profile changes in these regimes to the extent possible, including a discussion of impacts on ecosystem function and consequent fire behavior; 3) To identify knowledge gaps in our understanding of wildland fuels; 4) To synthesize available information on wildiand fuel profiles in the US, including ecological and physical responses of different ecosytems to various fuel treatments; 5) To develop educational materials and information dissemination plans that can be used in inter-agency training sessions or workshops dealing with the evaluation of alternative fuel treatments across fire regimes and fuel types.
