SFE Webinar: The Ecology of Fuels
April 27, 2017
Presenter: Joe O'Brien, Ph.D., Research Ecologist, Southern Research Station, US Forest Service
Webinar Presentation Abstract
Fuels are one of the three elements of the fire triangle. In this webinar Dr. Joe O'Brien with the US Forest Service Southern Research Station will use examples from Southeastern US fire ecology to highlight the complex relationships linking forest structure, natural fuels and wildland fire. These interactions are frequently underappreciated and oversimplified in the wildland fire community. A better understanding of natural fuels can improve land management at multiple levels and fuels can act as a bridge linking the fire ops, forestry and ecology professional communities. Following the webinar there will be time for audience Q/A.
