DescriptionOne of the priority research areas at the Aldo Leopold Wilderness Research Institute addresses the “need for improved information to guide the stewardship of fire as a natural process in wilderness while protecting social and ecological values inside and outside wilderness.” This research topic area was developed with the knowledge that wildland fire, as a natural disturbance process, can preserve ecological conditions inside and outside wilderness ecosystems and, at the same time, influence societal values across the interface between wilderness and nonwilderness lands.
