2018 Webinar: Seasonal Timing of Fire and its Influence on Succession
Fires play an outsized role in shaping plant communities, but the effects of fires on plant communities are often highly variable. This presentation will focus on how the seasonal timing of fire influences fire behavior and in turn how fire effects and phenology interact to influence forest succession and post-fire regeneration. Results from a recent case study comparing the effects of an early season fire and several late season wildfires on tree community composition in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness will be presented along with implications for the use of prescribed fire in forest management.
Date: Tuesday February 20, 2018 from noon to 1:00pm (Central)
Speaker: Eli Anoszko, UMN Department of Forest Resources and MN DNR
