    Description

    Wildfire may pose serious threats to both direct (for example, heating, dissolved toxic gases) and indirect (for instance, post-fire floods, erosion, changing habitat), aquatic ecosystems (Dunham and others 2003; Gresswell 1999). There is, however, increasing recognition that major flood, erosion, and mass wasting events after fires can also be important to the formation of complex habitats that are beneficial in the long-term (Bisson and others 2003; Reeves and others 1995).
