DescriptionThis conference provided an arena for identifying common key issues that are shaping wildland fire research. Commonly identified desired outcomes include: research, integrated across disciplines, and management form partnerships; communication between management and research is effective and continuous; responsive and proactive research balances long-term scientific goals with rapidly changing management issues; the success of research and development is measured by on-the-ground implementation; and fire research is responsive to national goals and receives long-term, stable political support. Action plans were developed around the following five key themes: create an interdepartmental competitive grant program; create a coordinated response to managing fire regimes for ecosystem health; create an environment for management and research collaboration; integrate social science expertise; and assess ecological risk.
