Goals / Objectives 1) Begin modelling of cumulative effects of hydrologic regime, fire frequency/intensity, and vegetation cover on hydrology and sediment movement in chaparral; 2) Develop preliminary models of vegetation response to fire regime, environmental stress and changing climate for chaparral; 3) Cooperatively develop fire hazard models using fuel, weather, fire behavior and remotely.

Larger branches may survive light-severity fire [19,80,95].DISCUSSION AND QUALIFICATION OF FIRE EFFECT: NO ENTRY PLANT RESPONSE TO FIRE: Saskatoon serviceberry sprouts after top-kill by fire [9,19,95].Bradley [] found that on burn sites in western Montana, Saskatoon serviceberry sprouted.

Prescribed fires - ignited under predetermined conditions to meet specific objectives, to mitigate risks to people and their communities, and/or to restore and maintain healthy, diverse ecological systems. Wildland fire - any non-structure fire, other than prescribed fire, that occurs in the wildland.

Purpose of the Fire Management Plan. This document is the Fire Management Plan (FMP) for the Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge (Kodiak NWR). The Plan is written to meet United States Department of the Interior (DOI) and U.S.

Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) requirements that all agency lands with burnable vegetation must be managed under an approved Fire Management Plan ( DM ). Pre-fire fuel reduction treatments influence plant communities and exotic species 9 years after a large wildfire.

Despite these potential influences, there is a lack of consensus in the published literature about responses, with some publications reporting large effects of beetle-killed trees on fuels and fire (e.g., Jenkins et al., ) and other studies reporting no effect or a reduced impact (e.g., Berg and Anderson,Bond et al., ).This range of responses leads to confusion among scientists Cited by: Spring burning in an aspen-conifer stand for maintenance of moose habitat, West Boulder River, Montana On the Kenai in Alaska, Spencer and Hakala () such as prescribed fire, logging and mechani- cal procedures, can be used to set back forest succession in the aspen Cited by: 4.

The National Park Service (NPS) announced today that deer removal operations, approved through the Fire Island National Seashore White-tailed Deer Management Plan, will be implemented during a window of operations starting March 1 through Ma at the William Floyd Estate, a unit of Fire Island National Seashore located on Long Island.

Beaches in Kenai Fjords National Park and Katmai National Park and Preserve in Alaska, like vast stretches of the Alaskan coast, suffered serious damage from the 11 million gallons of crude oil spilled by the Exxon tanker Valdez in Before the spill, coastal resource inventories in these parks, both biotic and archaeological, were virtually nonexistent.

The latter acreage includesacres ( ha) (33 percent) where trees are not the primary vegetation. The use of prescribed fire on these lands has been considered in the land management planning process^see Spread Creek-North Gros Ventre Land Use Plan).

In the Kenai Mountains, southeastern Alaska, some mountain goats used small home ranges year-round, whereas others migrated >15 miles (24 km) between winter and summer ranges.

In the Bitterrroot Mountains, Montana, mountain goats migrated 5 to 10 miles ( km) between ranges [ ].

Tree voles, masked shrews and some mice decrease, at least temporarily, after severe forest fire, but most bats and ungulates and many small mammals—especially deer mice and kangaroo rats—are strongly attracted to severely burned habitats due to novel foraging by: 2.
