The Biscuit Fire 10 Years Later

A decade of new growth in the once-ravaged Siskiyou National Forest soon will generate more knowledge. Dan Donato, now a post-doctoral researcher in the Department of Forest Ecosystems and Society, is leading a follow-up study with funding from the Joint Fire Sciences Program (managed by the U.S. departments of Agriculture and Interior). The new study will look at the rates and patterns of post-fire vegetation growth, the effects of post-fire logging and the impact of subsequent burns.
