Title: Effectiveness of Fuel Treatment of Mitigating Wildfire Severity: A Manager-Focused Review and Synthesis

Project Proposal Abstract: We propose a four-pronged approach for synthesizing information on fuel treatment effectiveness: ? Scoping exercises with land manager focus groups; ? Review of relevant published literature; ? Quantitative synthesis (meta-analysis) of comparable data sources; ? Organization of pictorial documentation into a searchable online database. We will use our ongoing instructional involvement with practicing fire managers to obtain meaningful feedback on our literature review and dissemination efforts.
