2017 Fire Congress Research Highlights

The Research Highlights below are short summaries of presentations given at the 7th International Fire Ecology and Management Congress, which was held in Orlando, Florida, November 28-December 2, 2017. This conference was hosted by the Association for Fire Ecology, in cooperation with the Southern Fire Exchange. These 1-3 page documents provide insight into how research can influence management decisions and practices, and we hope they are a valuable resource or both wildland fire managers and researchers. 

Presenters who still wish to submit a research highlight can do so by completing the form at this link: https://fireecology.wufoo.com/forms/qolhvik0rfdktb
