Author(s): Eric E. Knapp, Becky L. Estes, Carl N. Skinner
Year Published: 2009
Description:

This synthesis project on season of prescribed burning is to summarize results from studies to date in order to provide managers a resource for predicting fire effects and understanding what variables drive these fire effects in different areas of the country with varying fire regimes. A secondary objective will be to identify key gaps in our understanding.
