Live from the Field
Fire Research Across the Continent

Wednesday, July 1, 11am-12pm PST/2pm-3pm EST

How is fire changing landscapes in the United States? Join us for an informal chat with researchers studying fire in California, Arizona, and Florida. Find out who they are, how they got interested in fire, and the research questions they are asking about the effects of increasing wildfire on natural systems.

    Eric Menges, Senior Research Biologist:
    Fire effects in Florida scrublands
  • Pepperwood Preserve
    Michelle Halbur, Preserve Ecologist:

“Live from the Field” events are part of the Organization of Biological Field Stations (OBFS) Virtual Field Project, an international collaboration prompted by the pandemic to give students virtual field experiences in ecosystems all over the world. Events are informal to give students opportunities to speak with researchers and develop a personal interest in doing research. All are welcome.
