Fire Ecology, FOR 526, is designed to give you an in-depth understanding of fire ecology in a variety of ecosystems. We'll study fire effects on plants, animals, soils, water and air. We'll also read extensively from current literature to gain familiarity with fire ecology research. We will emphasize fire as an ecological process in wildland ecosystems, how to characterize and predict fire effects over time and space, and how to apply this to restoration ecology. We will draw upon ecological theories about succession, disturbance, and ecological processes.

I'm fascinated by fire ecology, and I love teaching and learning together with my students.

Syllabus and schedule for 2012 are available here. Course materials are in BBlearn
