This Fire Ecology collection "Restoring Fire in Eastern Oak Savannas and Forests" is a collection of papers on a fire-prone region of North America that has been somewhat overlooked in the past- oak savannas, woodlands, and forests. Papers that cover this topic are encouraged in addition to those presented at the 6th Fire in Eastern Oak Forests Conference held in State College, Pennsylvania, USA.
Fire is widely recognized as a dominant historic process across most of eastern North America, but many hurdles have slowed restoration progress.
These collected papers represent substantial contributions toward understanding how fire impacts plants, animals, ecosystem processes, and includes novel research on on-going restoration efforts in the region.
