    This special issue of Fire Ecology is fo-cused on the fire ecology of eastern USA oak (Quercus L.) forests, woodlands, and savannas. The papers were presented as part of the Fifth Fire in Eastern. Rocky Mountain National Park - Fire Ecology Teacher Guide Introduction Fire plays an important role in many ecosystems. It is a natural, episodic event on the same level as other natural occurrences, such as tornadoes, earthquakes, and floods.

The Ecology of Fire Hearing or seeing a fire in nature can be frightening. One can fear its destructive forces as it moves from one tree to another, devouring fuel as it seeks more. Yet fire in a forest can serve a great purpose. John Muir wrote the following in his book Our National Parks.

      A leading expert in the emerging field of fire ecology, James Agee analyzes the ecological role of fire in the creation and maintenance of the natural forests common to most of the western U.S/5(12). In doing so, Noss is the first to apply the new discipline of evolutionary fire ecology to a specific region. This book is a fascinating history of fire ecology in Florida, an enlightening look at why fire matters to the region, and a necessary resource for conservationists and fire .
