The U.S. Geological Survey conducts fire ecology research to understand the effects of wildland fire on ecosystem structure and function, and on other ecological attributes such as wildlife habitat. Research is also directed as understanding fire history and fire regimes; interactions of fire with invasive species (e.g. cheatgrass) and climate variability; fire relations with vegetation structure and effectiveness of fuel treatments; and development of guidelines for restoring and rehabilitating fire-impacted ecosystems and watersheds.
