About this book

Fire in California's Ecosystems describes fire in detail both as an integral natural process in the California landscape and as a growing threat to urban and suburban developments in the state. Written by many of the foremost authorities on the subject, this comprehensive volume is an ideal authoritative reference tool and 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 fires, vegetation, climate, weather, fire as a physical and ecological process, and fire regimes, 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 as climate change, air quality, watershed management, invasive plant species, native species, social dynamics, and fuel management, and considers the future of fire management. This edition includes critical scientific and management updates and four new chapters on fire weather, fire regimes, climate change, and social dynamics.
