Simulated Indigenous fire stewardship increases the population growth rate of an understorey herb

Understanding how plant populations respond to multiple drivers is increasingly critical for biodiversity conservation under global change. Indigenous knowledge can provide guidance for sustainable

Lessons from Fire: The Displaced Radiata Pine on Mapuche Homelands and the California Roots of Chile’s Climate Crisis

Over the past century, vast swathes of Chile’s biologically diverse temperate rainforest have been replaced with radiata pine monoculture as a direct result of exchanges with California that began

Adapting western North American forests to climate change and wildfires: 10 common questions

Based on the review of the scientific evidence, a range of proactive management actions are justified and necessary to keep pace with changing climatic and wildfire regimes and declining forest successional heterogeneity after severe wildfires.

When Ice Turns to Water: Forest Fires and Indigenous Settlements in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia)

In recent years, forest fires have covered many parts of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia). The fires often threaten populated areas and Indigenous communities as well. In 2020–2021, the fires caused

Conceptualizing Indigenous Cultural Ecosystem Services (ICES) and Benefits under Changing Climate Conditions in the Klamath River Basin and Their Implications for Land Management and Governance

Abstract. In the Klamath River Basin (KRB) of northern California and southern Oregon, climate-related changes, such as more intense droughts, varied and concentrated precipitation, earlier spring

Indigenous Fire Stewardship: Federal/Tribal Partnerships for Wildland Fire Research and Management

and Tribal peoples in North America’s fire-prone ecosystems developed sophisticated relationships with wildland fire that continue today. This article introduces philosophical, conceptual, and

The Scientific Basis of the Target Plant Concept: An Overview

Reforestation and restoration using nursery-produced seedlings is often the most reliable way to ensure successful establishment and rapid growth of native plants. Plant establishment success—that

Traditional Fire Knowledge: A Thematic Synthesis Approach

: Building fire-adaptive communities and fostering fire-resilient landscapes have become two of the main research strands of wildfire science that go beyond strictly biophysical viewpoints and call



Prescribed fire and tanoak (Notholithocarpus densiflorus ) associated cultural plant resources of the Karuk and Yurok Peoples of California

Author(s): Halpern, Arielle | Advisor(s): Sousa, Wayne P; Carlson, Thomas J | Abstract: The targeted application of prescribed fire has long been used by Native Californian peoples to manage plant


Woody plants in fire-frequented ecosystems commonly resprout from underground organs after fires. Responses to variation in characteristics of fire regimes may be a function of plant physiological

The effects of indigenous prescribed fire on riparian vegetation in central California

IntroductionFire has a long history, but little documented role, as a process in riparian ecosystems. For millennia California Indians have applied fire to riparian ecosystems for a variety of

Ecological and Cultural Significance of Burning Beargrass Habitat on the Olympic Peninsula, Washington

Results indicate that fire is a useful tool for enhancing low-elevation beargrass populations in this region.

The Fire, Pruning, and Coppice Management of Temperate Ecosystems for Basketry Material by California Indian Tribes

Straight growth forms of wild shrubs and trees unaffected by insects, diseases, or accumulated dead material have been valued cross-culturally for millennia for use in basketry, yet these growth

Fire, leaf harvest, and abiotic factors drive demography of an ecologically and culturally important understory plant

Fire is a key driver of beargrass demography and fire interacted with other factors to influence beargRass vital rates, providing evidence that be argrass is fire‐adapted.

Using Traditional Ecological Knowledge as a Basis for Targeted Forest Inventories: Paper Birch (Betula papyrifera) in the US Great Lakes Region

Traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) has been proposed as a basis for enhanced understanding of ecological systems and their management. TEK also can contribute to targeted inventories of resources

Fire severity and ecosytem responses following crown fires in California shrublands.

It is shown that stand age, prefire shrub density, and the shortest interval of the prior fire history had significant direct effects on fire severity, explaining > 50% of the variation in severity.

Local and global pyrogeographic evidence that indigenous fire management creates pyrodiversity

The fieldwork and modeling results imply that the occurrence of long-unburnt habitat in fire-prone ecosystems may be an emergent property of patch scaling under fire regimes dominated by smaller fires, providing a model for understanding how anthropogenic burning alters spatial and temporal aspects of habitat heterogeneity.
