Abstract

The Great Basin Fire Science Exchange connects land managers and scientists to improve pre- and post-fire 29 management decisions by providing relevant information and access to technical expertise. This project is one of 15 regional Fire Science Exchanges funded by the Joint Fire Science Program. The project works to: 1.Provide a forum for identification of fire, fuels, and post-fire vegetation management technical needs; 2. Develop and synthesize the information and technical tools to meet these needs; 3. Provide the information and technical tools through preferred venues; 4. Develop direct lines of communication between scientists and managers. We expect public and private land managers to benefit from this project by having a place and a person to turn to for answers to technical questions and leads to research contacts, and we expect research scientists to benefit by gaining new ideas and partnerships for research and by providing new methods of outreach for research results.
