Description: Regardless of how horrible and devastating wildland fires are portrayed by the media, they are a natural disturbance that many native ecosystems depend on for regeneration. As the population of the United States increases, more individuals are building their homes in wildlands rather than urban landscapes. Homes built in undeveloped wildland vegetation create areas often referred to as the wildland-urban interface (Bradley 1984, Macie and Hermansen 2002). Approximately 44.8 million housing units (38.5% of all houses) are located in the interface (Radeloof et al. 2005). A high proportion of these homes occur in fire-dependent ecosystems.
