This state-of-knowledge review of information on relationships between
wildland fire and nonnative invasive plants can assist fire managers and
other land managers concerned with prevention, detection, and eradication
or control of nonnative invasive plants. The 16 chapters in this volume
synthesize ecological and botanical principles regarding relationships
between wildland fire and nonnative invasive plants, identify the
nonnative invasive species currently of greatest concern in major
bioregions of the United States, and describe emerging fire-invasive
issues in each bioregion and throughout the nation. This volume can help
increase understanding of plant invasions and fire and can be used in fire
management and ecosystem-based management planning. The volume's first
part summarizes fundamental concepts regarding fire effects on invasions
by nonnative plants, effects of plant invasions on fuels and fire regimes,
and use of fire to control plant invasions. The second part identifies the
nonnative invasive species of greatest concern and synthesizes information
on the three topics covered in part one for nonnative invasives in seven
major bioregions of the United States: Northeast, Southeast, Central,
Interior West, Southwest Coastal, Northwest Coastal (including Alaska),
and Hawaiian Islands. The third part analyzes knowledge gaps regarding
fire and nonnative invasive plants, synthesizes information on management
questions (nonfire fuel treatments, postfire rehabilitation, and postfire
monitoring), summarizes key concepts described throughout the volume, and
discusses urgent management issues and research questions.
