    Description

    The ecosystems within the area that burned in the Hayman Fire have a long history of fire (see part 1 of this chapter). It follows, therefore, that all of the native species and populations in this area probably have one or more mechanisms for enduring fire or becoming reestablished after fire and that no native species is likely to become extinct as a result of the direct effects of the Hayman Fire. It also follows that active rehabilitation is not required for all of the burned area. In fact, much or even most of the area is likely to recover normally without intervention, and in some areas our well-intentioned rehabilitation efforts actually could interfere with natural recovery processes.
