Title: Wildfire Regime Shifts in Temperate Forest Ecosystems: International Symposium in New Zealand

Project Proposal Abstract: We seek travel support for approximately 8 early-career scientists to participate in a wildfire conference we are organizing for January 2013 to be held in conjunction with the VII Southern Connection Congress in Dunedin, New Zealand. The Southern Connection Congress is a triennial meeting of interdisciplinary researchers and natural resource managers who are interested in the biota and ecosystems of the temperate latitudes of the southern hemisphere. The triennial SCCs have become the premier venue for presentation of research on southern hemisphere biota and ecosystem change across a range of time scales represented by modern ecological studies as well as paleoecology and paleobiology. We are organizing three symposia focusing on fire ecology, climate and human impacts on fire regimes, and management challenges related to the effects of humans and climate change on fire. We will include east-west southern hemisphere perspectives (e.g. South America, South Africa, and Australia/New Zealand) as well as north-south cross Pacific perspectives (e.g. including western North America). We will invite early-career fire researchers working in the southern and northern hemispheres to promote long-term collaborations that could foster new ideas in fire ecology research.
