Ziegler et al. 2017: Spatially explicit measurements of forest structure and fire behavior following restoration treatments in dry forests
Researchers from Colorado State University and the Rocky Mountain Research Station of the USDA Forest Service are investigating how wildfire models can better estimate fire behavior in restored forests. Graduate student Justin Ziegler is the project contact and more information can be accessed here.
Researchers from the University of Montana's Bureau of Business and Economic Research have initiated a logging utilization study to quantify removal and residue amounts from forest restoration. More information can be accessed here.
PhD student Kim Coleman from Virginia Tech University is reseaching large-scale collaborative natural resource management in the United States. The goal of Kim's research is to learn about the particular challenges associated with conducting large-scale restoration and navigating procedural requirements. More information can be found here.
