Historical and cultural fires, tribal management and research issue in Northern California: trails, fires and tribulations

Author(s): Frank K. Lake
Year Published: 2013
Description:

Indigenous people’s detailed traditional knowledge about fire, although superficially referenced in various writings, has not for the most part been analyzed in detail or simulated by resource managers, wildlife biologists, and ecologists. . . . Instead, scientists have developed the principles and theories of fire ecology, fire behavior and effects models, and concepts of conservation, wildlife management and ecosystem management largely independent of native examples.
