Wildland Fuel , 2015 Fundamentals and Application

Langue : Anglais

Auteur :

Couverture de l’ouvrage Wildland Fuel
A new era in wildland fuel sciences is now evolving in such a way that fire scientists and managers need a comprehensive understanding about fuels ecology and science to fully understand fire effects and behavior on diverse ecosystem and landscape characteristics. This is a reference book on wildland fuel science, a book that describes fuels and their application in land management.  There has never been a comprehensive book on wildland fuels, most wildland fuel information was put into wildland fire science and management books as separate chapters and sections.  This book is the first to highlight wildland fuels and treat them as a natural resource rather than a fire behavior input. Moreover, there has never been a comprehensive description of fuels and their ecology, measurement, and description under one reference, most wildland fuel information is scattered across diverse and unrelated venues from combustion science to fire ecology to carbon dynamics.  The literature and data for wildland fuel science has never been synthesized into one reference, most studies were done for diverse and unique objectives.  This book is the first to link the disparate fields of ecology, wildland fire, and carbon to describe fuel science. This just deals with the science and ecology of wildland fuels, not fuels management. However, since expensive fuel treatments are being planned in fire dominated landscapes across the world to minimize fire damage to people, property and ecosystems, it is incredibly important that people understand wildland fuels to develop more effective fuel management activities.

The first comprehensive volume on wildland fuels in the context of ecology and land management

Provides the critical information on the characteristics of wildland fuels that fire management professionals need to design, evaluate, and implement fuel treatments

This book has many secondary applications, including for carbon accounting, wildlife habitat assessment, erosion control, and smoke calculation
