Abstract or Summary
  • Even after 140 years without a fire, mixed-conifer forest such as Teakettle’s Experimental Forest has a distinct patch pattern and complex structure. Researcher Malcolm North and colleagues examined the structure and function of these ecosystems and their response to widely used restoration treatments. Collectively the studies found fire was essential to restoring many ecosystem processes and that thinning could be best used as a tool to influence burn intensity and extent. Includes interview with Malcolm P. North and suggested readings. Early draft of this issue of Science Perspectives by Anne M. Rosenthal, is a science writer based in the San Francisco Bay Area.
