Shortgrass steppe fire ecology webinar

Check out this excellent video presentation given by Dr. David Augustine, landscape ecologist at USDA-ARS in Fort Collins, CO. The webinar addresses several questions related to shortgrass steppe fire ecology, including the following:
-What is the role of fire in shaping shortgrass rangelands of the western U.S?
-Was fire historically important in this ecosystem?
-What is the potential for using fire as a management tool in semiarid grassland regions today?

This video is part of a webinar series sponsored by the Southern Rockies Fire Science Network, Southwest Fire Consortium, and Great Plains Fire Science Exchange.
