Course Description - M-580 Fire in Ecosystem Management

January 26 - 30, 2015 (Tentative)

Target Audience

This course is targeted for individuals who are looking to enhance their knowledge and understanding of fire management and fire ecology.  However, this is not an advanced fire ecology course.

Course Goals

Course Description

Through lectures, case studies, a field trip, and interaction between participants and faculty, the course will:

Nationally recognized subject matter experts and practitioners serve as instructors in this course.

Additional Information

The course does not provide a “cookbook” for ecosystem management; rather this course provides concepts, and ecological and social considerations to assist the student with developing specific fire management programs. Local fire effects information and monitoring details are provided in other courses.

M-580 curriculum contains some similar content as Rx510 – Advanced Fire Effects, Technical Fire Management (TFM) and university level fire ecology programs. If prospective nominees have attended one of these programs there may be some duplication in M-580.
