Research topics include:

1. Implications of changing ecosystems in selected regions
2. Social and regulatory barriers and facilitators to implementing prescribed fire
3. Maintenance and restoration of sagebrush habitat in the Great Basin

Additional research topics are available for graduate students, including:

  • Climate change and fire (e.g., fire behavior, fire effects, fire regime)
  • Post-fire recovery (e.g., effects of burn severity, treatment effectiveness)
  • Smoke or emissions assessments
  • Fire weather
  • Social issues and fire (e.g., community preparation, transfer and use of science, public perceptions, fire-adapted communities)

View the Funding Opportunity Notices for more information, as well as a few more options for specialized research topics.
