Overall Study

The Fire/Fire Surrogates (FFS) research project was developed to study the effects of hazard reduction/ecosystem restoration treatments within five disciplinary areas: Vegetation, Fuels/Fire Behavior, Soils, Insects and Disease, and Wildlife. Each discipline has identified a set of core variables to be measured across all 13 sites in the national FFS network. Data within each discipline are also collected using standardized sampling protocols. This approach ensures data compatibility for later meta-analyses at the regional or national level. Additional complementary studies (e.g., graduate student thesis projects) are also being conducted at the Lubrecht FFS site to take advantage of the experimental design and treatments already in place.
