Description: 

Deadline passed as of August 18, 2017. Deadline for 2018 unknown. US Geological Survey is offering a funding opportunity to a CESU parnter to develop a synthesis of knowledge that clearly identifies what is known and not known about the response of Northwest forest communities to changing fires regimes. This synthesis will provide an important resource for regional managers and help identify future science opportunities for the NW CSC to pursue. In particular, managers need information about how climate change will affect fire regimes and what plant communities will return after stand-replacing fires. This information is critical for development of post-fire restoration projects and forest management plans.
