Different ecosystems have different responses to fire. In addition, largely as a result of human actions, fires are behaving differently now than they have throughout history. Our fire ecologists use science-based, collaborative assessments to set conservation priorities and to improve our understanding of the role of fire and the underlying causes of fire regime alteration.
Working with partners, we conduct fire assessments at a variety of scales – global, national, regional, state, and individual sites.
