Do you research the effects that fire has on fish, wildlife, or plants in California or surrounding areas?
Fire is a natural and ecologically important factor in California ecosystems. In addition to natural fire effects, human modification or attempted modification of fire behavior, through suppression, vegetation management, prescribed fire, and other activities also affect wildlife and their habitat. Understanding the complex positive and negative impacts of fire and fire-related management actions on California’s fish, wildlife, and plants is vital to future conservation and management planning.
