Sponsored by OSU pyro-maniacs
Recorded October 24, 2018 - 11:00am
Presented by Alan Taylor

Humans modulate fire regimes, forest characteristics, and fire-climate relationships..

Alan is a Professor of Geography and Ecology at Penn State and Associate of the Earth and Environmental Systems Institute at The Pennsylvania State University. His research during the last 25 years has focused on the effects and interactions of fire disturbance, climate, and people on forest dynamics at various time scales, and on the influence of understory plants on tree regeneration. Alan presented on "Humans modulate fire regimes, forest characteristics, and fire-climate relationships in California Montane Forests." Watch the video on our YouTube channel.
