Fire Management Under Climate Change

A panel discussion on fire and its effects on human and ecological communities in a changing world

The seminar will be held on Thursday, 11 October, 3:30 – 4:30 pm in 3503 Thomas Hall, Stephens Room. (Note change in location)
At its most beneficial, fire is an essential component of numerous ecological communities. At its most damaging, fire can pose a threat to human communities and health. Climate change is altering fire regimes, with some regions projected to experience increases or decreases in wildfire activity. Land use change additionally complicates the dynamics of wildfire and prescribed burns. Under those global drivers, fire managers are facing new challenges. Join us in a discussion about fire and its management in a changing world. How will changes in fire regime affect ecological communities? What are the challenges of co-management for fire? What human communities are most vulnerable to detrimental impacts from wildfire? We invite you to listen, discuss, and explore these questions with us and our expert panel.
