    Description

    Ecosystems and landscapes change over time as a function of vegetation characteristics and disturbance regimes, including fire. Interactions between disturbance events and forest development (succession) create patterns of vegetation across landscapes. These patterns result from, and change with respect to, species compositions and structures that arise from disturbance events interrupting successional pathways at ditlerent points during forest development. Vegetation patterns and disturbance regimes are modified by the effects of topography on the biotic and abiotic processes that drive forest development and disturbance regimes. The propagation and spread of disturbances are heavily influenced by the spatial arrangement of living and dead vegetation across the landscape.
