Fire Ecology and Management

GEOG 397: Issues in Anthropology, Geography & Environmental Studies

Prof. Tony Marks-Block

Mondays 12:30PM - 3:15PM

On campus

In the past four years, wildfire has engulfed California in unprecedented ways: destroying homes, taking lives, and toxifying the air.  Yet, fire is inextricable from humanity and is used to manage land and enhance cultural resources and ecosystems worldwide.  In this course, we will investigate human-fire relationships and learn field methods for studying fire ecology with the aim to improve fire management and policy in California and beyond.
