Summary
"Fire in California's Ecosystems describes fire in detail both as an integral natural process in the California landscape and growing threat to its urban and suburban developments. Written by many of the foremost authorities on the subject, this comprehensive volume, an ideal text and authoritative reference tool, is the foremost synthesis of knowledge on the science, ecology, and management of fire in California. Part I introduces the basics of fire ecology, including overviews of historical fire, vegetation, weather, climate, fire as a physical and ecological process, and reviews the interactions between fire and the physical, plant, and animal components of the environment. Part II explores the history and ecology of fire in each of California's nine bioregions. Part III examines fire management in California, including Native American and post-European settlement, current issues related to fire policy such climate change, air quality, watershed management, invasive plant species, native species, and fuel management, and considers the future of fire management. This edition includes critical scientific and management updates and two new chapters on climate change"--Provided by publisher
