Description: Free-burning fire has been a constant ecological presence on the American landscape, the expression of which has changed as new climates, peoples, and land uses have become predominant (Pyne 2010). It is an important ecological mechanism that shapes the distributions of species, maintains the structure and function of fire-prone communities, and is a significant evolutionary force (Bond and Keeley 2005).
