The conundrum of “Megafires”

Talk by Local Fire Ecologist Dennis Odion

"Megafires" are increasingly damaging to people and their assets. "Active management" of forests has been proposed as a cannot miss solution with highly desired fringe benefits. But, what is "active management"? Can it live up to the hype? This talk will explore these questions.  Dennis Odion, Ph.D, is an ecologist interested in vegetation pattern and process. He has studied fire behavior and effects via field experiments and geographical methods. He previously monitored fires as a vegetation manager and field technician in northern California, gaining valuable practical experience with fire suppressed forests, and on the subject of living with fire. Dr. Odion has also studied the resiliency of fire-specialized species. He has lived in Ashland since 2000.

There is a follow up field trip to Grizzly Peak on October 26 that will complement the presentation by focusing on the ecological effects of crown (severe) fire in our forests.
