This special collection includes papers about fire effects on wildlife and fire management for wildlife. Many wildlife species require forest conditions created by large-scale disturbances, including fire. Differences in responses to fire and fire severity among the diverse wildlife species across US forests highlight the need to appropriately target prescribed fires.
These papers were presented at the Wildfire and Prescribed Fire Effects on Wildlife in US Forests symposium of The Wildlife Society conference held on September 30, 2020. In addition, we encourage other researchers and managers to submit papers that cover this topic.
