How Does Fire Suppression Alter the Wildfire Regime? A Systematic Review

Year of Publication
2023
Publication Type
Fire suppression has become a fundamental approach for shaping contemporary wildfire regimes. However, a growing body of research suggests that aggressive fire suppression can increase high-intensity wildfires, creating the wildfire paradox. Whether the strategy always triggers the paradox remains a topic of ongoing debate.

Quantifying the effect of elevation and aspect on fire return intervals in the Canadian Rocky Mountains

Year of Publication
2017
Publication Type
The effect of topography on wildfire distribution in the Canadian Rockies has been the subject of debate. We suspect the size of the study area, and the assumption fire return intervals are distributed as a Weibull distribution used in many previous studies may have obscured the real effect of topography on these fire-regulated ecosystems.

Climate changes and wildfire alter vegetation of Yellowstone National Park, but forest cover persists

Year of Publication
2017
Publication Type
We present landscape simulation results contrasting effects of changing climates on forest vegetation and fire regimes in Yellowstone National Park, USA, by mid-21st century. We simulated potential changes to fire dynamics and forest characteristics under three future climate projections representing a range of potential future conditions using the FireBGCv2 model.
