Growing up: Findings from a JFSP student project on post-fire conifer regeneration trajectories in eastern Oregon

May 1, 2019 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm
Northwest Fire Science Consortium

What will you learn?

This presentation will focus on findings from JFSP-supported graduate research on post-fire conifer establishment following recent wildfires in eastern Oregon's Blue Mountains. Given shifting climate and wildfire regimes, managers and researchers seek information on forest resilience and recovery trajectories. Understanding establishment and growth rates post-fire is pertinent both to fuels management planning, in cases of overabundant regeneration, as well as to decisions surrounding replanting for sites with limited post-fire regeneration. The presentation will summarize current knowledge on the relative influence of site-level versus climatic factors affecting regeneration in western North America, and present data from the Blue Mountains ecoregion.

Presenter:

Angela Boag, Research Associate, University of Colorado Boulder
