    Description

    Fire has a long history of regional use in the United States for forest, range and game management. Except for a few high-profile threatened, endangered, and sensitive species such as the pine barrens treefrog (Hyla andersonii), the red-cockaded woodpecker (Picoides borealis), and the Kirtland?s warbler (Dendroica kirtlandii), the use of prescribed burning for nongame management efforts has been rare. Moreover, in areas such as the central hardwood regions, the Appalachians and the Pacific Northwest, silvicultural uses of fire have been discouraged, which consequently have limited applications of fire for nongame management. However, new emphases on biodiversity and community restoration are leading to re-examination of fire as a management tool in regions with fire-dependent systems, such as the southeastern Coastal Plain and in areas where fire historically has been excluded.
