Each of these plans was prepared for different reasons.   It has natural and beneficial functions in fire-adapted ecosystems. The truth is: Wildfire is an element of nature. Although fire can be destructive, particularly where property and life are concerned, it is important to recognize that fire performs a vital role in the ecosystem.

NEPA/NHPA Planning Requirements. Climate changes and associated shifts in ecosystems and fire regimes present enormous challenges for the management of landscapes in the Southwestern US. A central question is whether management strategies can maintain or promote desired ecological conditions under projected future climates.

We modeled wildfire and forest responses to climate changes and management activities using two Cited by: 7. Land cover modeling is used to inform land management, but most often via a two-step process, where science informs how management alternatives can influence resources, and then, decision makers can use this information to make decisions.

A more efficient process is to directly integrate science and decision-making, where science allows us to learn in order to better accomplish management Cited by: 6.

We here find that ecosystem services of all four categories defined by the MEA () (provisioning, supporting, regulating, and cultural) are predominately negatively impacted by natural by: Introduction.

Wildland fire management in the United States is an increasingly complex and challenging problem. With a rising number of acres burned annually and a growing number of people living in or adjacent to fire-prone areas, much is at stake.

It presents several international case studies that discuss the historical, social, cultural and ecological aspects of wildfire risk management in countries with a long history of dealing with this hazard (e.g., USA, Australia) and in countries (e.g., Taiwan) where wildfire hazards represent a new and growing threat to the social and ecological.

One such example is the maintenance of natural fire regimes in fire-adapted ecosystems (Section ). Another example is the temporary (or sometimes permanent) supply of limiting resources, such as exposed mineral licks, carcasses for scavengers, and nest boxes for bats and birds.

Others said federal, state, local, and private land managers need to come together long before a fire occurs to be in a position to readily implement land and fire management plans when needed. Another practice mentioned by some participants is the creation of opportunities for sustained community engagement, which would facilitate more.

Invasive Species Council recognizes the Administration’s commitment to dealing proactively with global climate change. However, unless we recognize and act on the impact of climate change and its interaction with ecosystems and invasive species, we will fall further behind in our effort to prevent, eradicate and manage invasive species.
