12-1-01 Remeasurement of Prior Studies - Effects of Prescribed Fire on Vegetation, Fuels, and Soil More Information Actions
The Joint Fire Science Program (JFSP) is seeking proposals to remeasure existing field studies that evaluate the use of prescribed fire to achieve desired vegetation conditions. Studies that evaluate the long-term effects of prescribed fire on vegetation, fuel, or soil are eligible for funding consideration. View FON

12-1-02 Non-Forest and Understory Fuels Growth, Response and Succession More Information Actions
Shrubs, grasses and forbs are poorly represented as understory components in forested stands in FVS, and non-forested communities are currently not modeled in FVS. JFSP is interested in supporting research to improve representation of understory components in forested stands in FVS; to develop growth, response and succession models for non-forested stands for use in FVS; and to provide information to support FVS Fire and Fuels Extension (FFE) which links FVS with models of fire behavior, fire effects, and fuel loading.

12-2-01 New Science Initiative  Fire Social Sciences More Information Actions
The Joint Fire Science Program (JFSP) is interested in sponsoring projects that stimulate and support activities that lead to or advance innovative ideas in fire social sciences. JFSP is particularly interested in collaborative projects with international partners, partnerships with scientists and institutions in closely allied fields that have not been heavily involved in fire research (e.g., natural hazards and disaster research), and innovative activities examining coupled human and natural systems. The goal is to push the frontiers of knowledge and understanding and to generate new ideas and concepts. The types of activities appropriate to this task statement are broad, and could include: " Articulation of new concepts or frameworks " A synthesis of information to generate new hypotheses " Field activities involving diverse scientists, policy-makers, managers, and citizens " Development of an experimental design to test an innovative hypothesis View FON

12-3-01 Graduate Research Innovation (GRIN) Award More Information Actions
In partnership with the Association for Fire Ecology, the Joint Fire Science Program (JFSP) invites current MS and PhD graduate students in the fields of wildland fire and related human dimensions and ecological sciences to apply for a Graduate Research Innovation (GRIN) award. Proposals must be directly related to the mission and goals of JFSP to be considered. Applicants are encouraged to search the JFSP website (www.firescience.gov) to learn more about the scope of JFSP activities. Proposals must directly address one of the following topics: " Climate change and fire (e.g., fire behavior, fire effects, fire regime) " Fuel management effectiveness and effects (e.g., treatment longevity, T&E or invasive species, carbon balance, pile burning, mastication treatments, WUI issues) " Smoke or emissions assessments " Social issues and fire (e.g., community preparation, transfer and use of science, public perceptions) Proposals on other topics will not be reviewed.
