Ecologist with LANDFIRE
LANDFIRE and LSFSC will co-host a webinar on June 16, 2015 at 1 PM Eastern/ 12 PM Central about the review and overhaul of more than 1,000 vegetation models that serve fire science communities and land management planners.
Using an expert-based model development process, LANDFIRE developed state-and-transition models to represent pre-settlement reference conditions for all ecological systems in the United States. Each model characterizes a single ecosystem called a Biophysical Setting (BpS), and consists of a quantitative state-and-transition model and a description document. Ecologist Randy Swaty of The Nature Conservancy’s LANDFIRE team will explain how the models and descriptions influence LANDFIRE spatial datasets, what BpS review means for the Lake States, and how you can contribute to the update.
