Abstract—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.

This appeared on the listserve with the same link. You can download it for free or order copies for free. I don't think they're even charging postage.

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

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
