Here is a description of the webinar:
"The California Fire Science Consortium is happy to announce the first presentation in our 2011 Webinar Series. Dr. Zander Evans, the Research Director of the Forest Guild, will be presenting on his Joint Fire Sciences Program-funded report on fuels treatment practices. The report focuses on the mixed conifer ecosystems of California, the central and southern Rockies, and the Southwest.
The first half of his presentation will review the historic conditions, past land use, natural fire regimes, impacts of altered fire regimes, and future prospects (given climate change) of mixed conifer forests. The second half of the presentation will address fuels treatment objectives, techniques, barriers, and successes across a range of ownerships, and draws on the experiences of 75 interviewed managers and experts who work in mixed confer ecosystems."
