Fostering resilience in Southwestern ecosystems: A problem solving workshop

Ecosystems and fire regimes are moving into new domains as a consequence of climate change, disturbance, and other causes. Fire professionals and land managers in the region are confronted with new fire regimes, fire effects, and ecosystem recovery trajectories following disturbance. To help fire and ecosystem managers and scientists in the Southwest understand and address ecosystem resilience under changing conditions, the Southwest Fire Science Consortium (SWFSC) hosted a workshop February 25-27, 2014 in Tucson, Arizona.
