Invasive plant species and the joint fire science program Postfire treatments that encourage high vegetative cover, without introducing new nonnative species in contaminated seed mixes, can help prevent further spread of nonnative species.

We present a summary of research on invasive plants and fire that has been generated through the Joint Fire Science Program-focusing specifically on ecology of species invasions, the interactions between fire and invasives, and the responses of invasives to different management practices.

There are three general reasons why management of invasive plants should be combined with the management of fires: 1) Fires can promote plant invasions. 2) Fire can be used as a tool to control plant invasions. 3) Plant invasions can affect fuels, fire behavior, and fire regimes.

Management options to control exotic invasive plant species in association with fuel reduction treatments in a wildland urban interface, Crooked River National Grassland - Final Report to the Joint Fire Science Program. By displacing native plants, these invasive plants often become the dominant plant species in sensitive areas, thus altering the ecosystem and the organisms that utilize it.

Sericea lespedeza (Lespedeza cuneata) is an invasive herbaceous plant species that impacts many parts of the southern Great Plains. Invasive and native plant responses to shrubland fuel reduction: comparing prescribed fire, mastication, and treatment season such as fuel reduction, is shifting the ecological balance from native fire-stimulated species to invasive nonnative annuals that invade from the nearby urban areas We thank the US Joint Fire Science Program Cited by: FIRE RESEARCH.

Across the Western U.S., a history of fire management has altered wildfire patterns on public lands. As a result, more frequent or severe blazes have destroyed native vegetation and cleared a path for invasive plants, like the yellow cheatgrass pictured above, across many ecosystems.

Plant species have sophisticated strategies for coping with fire and surviving in fire-prone areas of the Canadian boreal (Rowe, ). Stan Rowe, a renowned Canadian forest ecologist, developed a clever classification of plant functional groups according to how they cope with fire, inspired by the work on vital attributes and the plant.

wetlands for many years. However, a strain from Europe, introduced in the early 19th century, aggressively displaces the native strain and has spread across the U.S. and Canada.
