Title: Introduction to the Special Issue: Humans, Fire, and Forests: The Reemergence of Research on Human Dimensions
Author: * Cortner, H.J.
Subject: Urban Interface
Abstract: In response to the call for papers for a special issue of So ciety and Natural Resources on humans, fire, and forests, the editorial office of the journal received 28 manuscripts, a surprisingly large number, and far more than expected. Wildfire and healthy forests have emerged as a highly salient public policy problem, and the funding made available to researchers as a result of initiatives such as the National Fire Plan and the Joint Fire Science Program has spawned a new generation of fire social science.
