In this issue of the GSD Update, we feature selected studies of the RMRS Grassland, Shrubland and Desert Ecosystems Science Program (GSD) that focus on the theme of fire. Significant results of recent research and science delivery by GSD scientists are highlighted. We feature program research that lines up with the strategic priorities and goals of the USDA Forest Service (USFS). These include improving, restoring and sustaining forest and rangeland condition, serving our customers and engaging with partners through co-production of knowledge and actions, and applying and delivering knowledge globally.
