Phenology of Fire: Listening to the Plants and Animals

January 18 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Fueling Collaboration Panel Discussion Series

Season of fire. Opening the burn window. Both of these focus on one of the elements that make up a fire regime – frequency, intensity/severity, extent/scale, and seasonality. Decades of spring-and/or autumn-centric fire can cause a site or landscape to respond very differently than when burned repeatedly across all flammable seasons. Summer burns can produce differing fire effects including increased species richness averages, biomass, and stem counts (especially forbs), and breaking up the plant species dominance resulting from dormant season burn windows. Our panelists will bring fresh voices to how we can learn from listening to our fire-dependent plants and animals and let the fire effects lead us toward desired outcomes.

Fueling Collaboration strives to build connections between land managers and researchers through a series of interactive virtual panel discussions.

Wildland fire management is complex and ever-changing. As the COVID-19 pandemic emerged in 2020, our planning team members recognized a need to continue to connect people throughout the region and across disciplines, organizations, and specializations. Fueling Collaboration is a forum designed to support those networks and to bring people together to discuss, explore, and address the latest fire science and fire management issues across the eastern United States.

Strong networks involving land managers, researchers, and fire professionals can increase the application of the best available science on the ground while ensuring critical science needs are recognized and addressed. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to meet these needs by hosting nuanced conversations on the cutting edge of fire management and science.

This series was developed by: the USDA Forest Service Northern Research Station, the USDA Forest Service Southern Research Station and the Joint Fire Science Program’s Consortium of Appalachian Fire Managers and ScientistsLake States Fire Science ConsortiumNorth Atlantic Fire Science ExchangeOak Woodlands & Forests Fire ConsortiumSouthern Fire Exchange, and Tallgrass Prairie and Oak Savanna Fire Science Consortium.
