Forests Born of Fire: Nature's Phoenix
Dr. Dominick DellaSala will share findings from his new book about the conservation needs of burned forests, how to live safely in fire-country, and the controversy around wildfires in a rapidly warming and changing world. There will be a short video, followed by Q&A.
Dr. DellaSala, President and Chief Scientist of the Geos Institute in Ashland, is an internationally renowned author of hundreds of conservation articles, including his award winning book “Temperate and Boreal Rainforests of the World.”
His new book, The Ecological Importance of Mixed-Severity Fires: Nature’s Phoenix, was compiled by 25 international scientists and describes the ecological benefits of wildfire on public lands. Burned forests are as rich in plants and wildlife as the more heralded old-growth forests. Both are threatened by logging.
