Fire on the mountain: birds and burns in the Rocky Mountains

Author(s): Natasha B. Kotliar, Victoria A. Saab, Richard L. Hutto
Year Published: 2005

Here we review the current state of knowledge about past fire regimes and how they have been altered by human activities. We also highlight the limited information on how avian communities respond to fire. We conclude with implications for fire management programs in the Rocky Mountains. See Kotliar et al. (in review) for more extensive discussion of these topics.
