New USFS report on wildland fire and invasive plants
A new report from the U.S. Forest Service Rocky Mountain Research Station offers a review of information on relationships between wildland fire and nonnative invasive plants that can assist fire managers and other land managers concerned with prevention, detection, and eradication or control of these invasive species. The-16 chapter study summarizes fundamental concepts regarding fire effects on nonnative invasives, their effects on fuels and fire regimes, and use of fire to control plant invasions. It also identifies the nonnative invasive species of greatest concern in seven major bioregions of the United States: Northeast, Southeast, Central, Interior West, Southwest Coastal, Northwest Coastal (including Alaska), and Hawaiian Islands.
