“Exorcising Natural Fire Precisionism in Southeastern Fire Management”

A free one hour webinar from the Southern Fire Exchange
Wednesday, July 12, 2017. 1:00 – 2:00 PM ET.

Presenter: Kevin, Hiers, Tall Timbers Research Station and Land Conservancy

Program Description:  The authors of a recent opinion article published in Trends in Ecology and Evolution (Hiers et al. 2016) argue that highly specific requirements for natural resource management are hurting the very species that they aim to conserve, while simultaneously constraining the ability of land managers to make local decisions and adapt to changing conditions. The authors suggest that highly precise habitat requirements—such as those originally used to describe suitable Red-cockaded woodpecker habitat—devalue “marginal” habitat, decrease landscape heterogeneity, and limit options for land managers. Join the lead author Kevin Hiers as he presents evidence against highly precise and prescriptive management recommendations and requirements. Following the webinar there will be time for audience Q/A.
