Ecosystem Response to Wildfire

In New England, the survival of many ecosystems is predicated upon the occurrence of disturbances, such as wildland fire, that alter the environment. Without these events, habitats that are home to many endangered species can undergo changes that intrinsically threaten the survival of imperiled organisms. However, not every ecosystem will respond to fire in the same way—and not every fire will create the same impacts. This course will survey the ecological response of select fire prone habitats to being burned and assess the impacts of fires occurring at varying severity, frequency, and size on them.

Please note: We do not make video or audio recordings of classes or programs available after the fact, because we believe education is interactive, with instructors and students building a community and culture of learning. Some programs may be recorded strictly for instructor-training purposes. Please visit this page to review this and other FAQs about our policies.
