Title: Including Fire Effects Information in a Manual of California Vegetation

Project Proposal Abstract: The development and implementation of fire management plans requires current scientific information about the interaction of fire and vegetation. In addition, the achievement of two of the principal purposes of the Joint Fire Science Plan is dependent upon having readily available, synthesized, and scientifically credible information on fire and vegetation interactions. The goal of this project is to complete the collection and synthesis of published and unpublished information on the interaction of fire and vegetation in California and to publish this information in the upcoming revision of A Manual of Caflfornia Vegetation (Manual). Two, two-day workshops will be held to collect, review, and synthesize fire regime information for the vegetation types of the Central Coast Range, the Central Valley, and southwestern California. This information will be added to similar data already summarized for the rest of the state and will be made widely available via the second printed edition of the Manual and the California Chapter of the Association for Fire Ecology and California Native Plant Society web sites.
