Title: Completion of Invasive Plant Knowledge Base Summaries for FEIS (Fire Effects Information System)

Project Proposal Abstract: This proposal addresses Tasks 1 & 2 of Joint Fire Sciences AFP 2003-4: Develop information structures, tools, or decision support systems for accessing, disseminating, and applying wildiand fire and fuels research results ... Produce readily understandable and useable information synthesis or transfer products on key topics of critical interest. Managers rely on the Fire Effects Information System (FEIS, online at www.fs.fed.us/database/feis) to plan prescribed fires, postfire rehabilitation, ecosystem restoration, and other ecosystem-based management. They need up-to-date information on both native species and nonnative invasive species. In FY200 1, the Joint Fire Science Program funded FEIS to add or revise 60 Knowledge Base summaries of nonnative invasive plant species to the system (Invasive Plant and Fire Interactions: Use of the Fire Effects Information System to Provide Information for Managers, Project 00-1-2-06). From a list of 156 species nominated for the project by invasive plant coordinators in federal land management agencies and tribes, we selected the 60 species for the project. Unfortunately, the budget for Project 00-1-2-06 was based on previous FEIS work with mostly native species. The work with nomiative invasives has been substantially more time-consuming than planned because of extended start-up time and longer writing time for each species summary. When funding for Project 00-1-2-06 is exhausted (May 2003), 32 of the planned 60 summaries will be completed. This proposal seeks finding to complete the remaining 28 summaries. The objective is to write the Knowledge Base summaries, including up-to-date fire/plant information and links to other Internet sites with high-quality information; obtain information and reviews from The Nature Conservancy's Wildland Invasive Species Team; and put the summaries online.
