Fire Ecology Program

The mission of the Fire Ecology Program at Tall Timbers is to produce science-based knowledge regarding the ecology and conservation of fire-dependent ecosystems with an emphasis on the southeastern US Coastal Plain.

Research is conducted in collaboration with the other research programs at Tall Timbers, private land owners, universities, state and government agencies, and other not­for­profit organizations. Information is shared through publications, conferences, seminars, and workshops, extension services to landowners, advisory committees, professional training courses, public outreach activities, mentoring of graduate students and interns, and guest lecturing at universities. Research is supported by institutional endowments, external grants, and private donations.
