Fire refugia: where and why do conifer forests persist through multiple fire events?

October 7, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Register today! October 7, 2021 11:00 a.m. PT Presenter: Dr. Meg Krawchuk, Oregon State University Changing wildfire regimes are causing rapid shifts in forests worldwide. In particular, forested landscapes that burn repeatedly in relatively quick succession may be at risk of conversion when pre-fire vegetation cannot recover between fires. Fire refugia (areas that burn less frequently or severely than the surrounding landscape) support post-fire ecosystem recovery and the persistence of vulnerable species in fire-prone landscapes. Observed and projected fire-induced forest…
