Fundamentals of Fire Ecology
The Fire Ecology Program
Fire effects are the impact fire has, whether directly or indirectly, on plants, animals and the environment.
Integrating Fire & Grazing to Promote Heterogeneity
Patch burning (PB) is the purposeful grazing of a section of an ecosystem or management unit that has been prescribed burned, and then burning another section to move the grazing pressure, thus creating a shifting mosaic on the ecosystem or management unit.
Donate to the Fire Ecology Program
Financial support from groups or individuals interested in fire ecology, patch burning, or the conservation and restoration of prairies, shrublands and forests through the use of fire adds tremendously to the fire ecology program. The faculty’s ability to conduct research, assist graduate students, offer scholarships to students, and provide outreach programs depends on funding from outside sources. If you would like to donate and be a part of the fire ecology program at Oklahoma State University’s Department of Natural Resource Ecology and Management feel free to contact any one of the faculty.
