    Description

    Prior to fire suppression and exclusion, wildfi­res and other disturbances (e.g.,insects, disease, and weather) sustained ecosystem processes in many landscapes of the Western United States. However, wild­fires have been increasing in size, frequency, and intensity in recent years (Kellogg and others 2008). Recognizing the value of wildfi­re, scientists and land managers now promote allowing non-human-caused fi­res to burn in these landscapes, hoping ­fire can recreate the historical distribution and mosaic of presettlement, burned forests.
