Wildland Fire

Accurate and timely scientific information is critical to ensure appropriate management response to wildfires and effective investments in stabilization, rehabilitation, and restoration of landscapes immediately after wildfires occur. Currently, fire management organizations lack adequate scientific information to prioritize burned regions for suppression and restoration activities.

USGS researches the post-fire response of sage grouse and other important components of a healthy sagebrush ecosystem and assess effectiveness of management actions, provides tools for land managers to respond quickly and efficiently to implement emergency stabilization actions, and provides science-based strategies for long-term recovery of the natural vegetation community for the use and enjoyment by ranchers and recreationalists.
