Title: 2014 Wildfire Season: An Overview, Southwestern U.S.
Author: Evans, A.M.
Abstract: Southwestern ecosystems are fire-adapted and fire is arguably the most important process in these forests and grass lands. This overview is designed to help everyone from the general public to natural resource managers better understand the past fire season. This report describes the vegetation impacted by the 12 largest fires (greater than 4,000 acres) of 2014 and the degree to which fires affect resources including soils, vegetation, and structures.
