Peluso, Beth A. “The Charcoal Forest: How Fire Helps Animals & Plants” (2007). Print.
The excerpts from this book tells how Beth A. Peluso explains exactly how forest fire can acts as a rebirth for the forest instead of just stating all of the negative effects. I have not been able to read this book in its entirety yet but I have purchased and it should arrive by July 15th. I believe it will have an abundance of valuable information.
The wildfires out West have burned hundreds of buildings, rousted thousands of people from their homes and caused millions of dollars in property damage. But people are not the only ones being burned out.
This article from ABC News provides a distilled version of how Forest Fires are caused and how they affect different animals. This source will work well for reinforcement of the basic ideas behind forest fires.
In this article, fire historian Stephen Pyne investigates how some plants, such as Cape Lilies and Lodgepole pines, and even some animals, have adapted to wildfire to such a degree that they can't live without it.
This article provides a well-rounded overview on the history of forest fires. Additionally, this article highlights specific plants and animals that have adapted to thrive following a forest fire. This will serve as a great reference point on how different plants and animals have adapted to forest fires.
This website has a wealth of information in regarding all aspects of forest fires and their affects in the Republic of Cyprus. Although, most of the information I have gathered is from the United State this will serve as something to reinforce the information gather in the States.
The goal of the research featured in this article is to find out if forest fires affect the bark of “longleaf pines.” The researchers had a control group of pines that were untouched by fire and an experiment group that was subjected to fire every two years. Even after 14 years of “bi-annual” fires the experiment group did not show any significant difference from the control group.

This report first gives a brief synopsis of how fires are started and progress into forest fires, including the “Fire Triangle.” It also provides some insight into plants that have adapted to or have been destroyed by forest fires. Lastly, it tells how forest fires actually work to keep the forest healthy by providing nutrients, removing clutter, etc.
Article on ecology of fires in California – why they are needed, what positive benefit they bring. It also gives a broad spectrum overview of how forest fires affect people but also how people affect forest fires.
Forest Service article discussing post-fire management and how different post-fire management techniques affect the regrowth of the forest. Specifically, management efforts could include limiting erosion, limiting timber decay, etc.
This USDA Forest Service research document highlights the effects of Forest Fires on soil and water. Specifically, the document identifies soil properties (including chemistry and physical makeup), and general responses to fire. Additionally, the article discusses how water and wetlands are effected by forest fires.
This article examines the effects on ant populations after forest fires. The researchers focused on “forested sites” and “sagebrush sites” that had been burnt or “undisturbed.” The study first looks at the amount of species and abundance of those species. Secondly, it looks at how those species were forced to change because of the fire.
