    Several researchers in the Forestry Sciences Laboratory have been actively involved in BEMRP since its inception in the early 1990s. The recent research on the Trapper Bunkhouse Land Stewardship Project began in 2004. In ecosystem management, sometimes we need to look at the big picture, or the landscape scale, and sometimes we need to work on a more local, or project-level scale. In the past few years we've taken a landscape-level approach to understanding the role of fire in riparian forests and have used models to predict where wildfires are likely to occur. We've also focused in on a project area where we might be able to affect wildfire behavior and study the effects of treatments to reduce wildfire risk.
