    Description

    This chapter discusses the relationship between fire (natural and prescribed) and nonnative plant species within major vegetation communities of the Northwest Coastal bioregion, and specifically addresses the role of fire in promoting nonnative species invasions, the effects of nonnative species on fire regimes, and usefulness of fire as a management tool for controlling nonnative species. Four plant communities of western Washington and Oregon will be covered: coastal Douglas-fir forests, montane forests and meadows, riparian forests, and Oregon oak woodlands. Three plant communities of Alaska will also be examined: coastal hemlock-spruce forests, boreal forests, and tundra (fig. 10-1). Table 10-1 provides a list of important nonnative species in the Northwest Coastal bioregion and their estimated impact within these plant communities.
