Introduction Regardless of how horrible and devastating wildland fires are portrayed by the media, they are a natural disturbance that many native ecosystems depend on for regeneration. As the population of the United States increases, more individuals are building their homes in wildlands rather than urban landscapes. Homes built in undeveloped wildland vegetation create areas often referred to as the wildland-urban interface (Bradley 1984, Macie and Hermansen 2002). Approximately 44.8 million…

The wildland-urban interface in the United States
TLDR
A spatially detailed assessment of the wildland-urban interface across the United States is conducted to provide a framework for scientific inquiries into housing growth effects on the environment and to inform both national policymakers and local land managers about the WUI and associated issues.
Development of a laboratory protocol for fire performance of landscape plants
Over 2.5 million people and 1 million structures risk destruction from wildland fires in California. One way to mitigate this risk is the manipulation and/or selection of landscape vegetation. In
USING AMMONIUM SULFATE FERTILIZER AS AN ORGANIC MULCH FIRE RETARDANT
The multiple benefits of organic mulches in landscape environments are well documented (3,7). The few problems associated with mulch use can be minimized or avoided with proper management. For
The Ease of Ignition of 13 Landscape Mulches
The ease of ignition of 13 commonly used landscape mulches was evaluated. Mulches have different ignition potentials based on several factors, including the length of exposure to heat and to the
