Introduction to Wildland Fire, Second Edition provides a comprehensive resource for studying the fundamentals of fire behavior, its ecological effects, and its cultural and institutional framework. This new Second Edition expands and updates the coverage of the field and explores the subject of wildfire management in a broad scientific, technical, and social context. Written by recognized authorities on fire management, it presents the fundamental physics and chemistry of fire, fire behavior, wildland fuels, the interaction of fires and weather, the ecological effects of fires, the structure of fire management programs, planning efforts, suppression strategies, prescribed fires, and global fire management. The new edition also includes such current problems as the burning of the Amazon rain forest and the implications of the recent drought-related fires that have plagued urban areas bordering on wilderness land. Throughout the book the authors keep the subject of fire itself central. They begin by identifying, clarifying, and consolidating the basic concepts and literature of fire as a natural occurrence in the environment. General principles are illustrated with reference to specific events, and the natural incidence of fire is related to its cultural causes and effects. Quantity Available: 1.
