California Wildfires: Forest Fire Ecology, Management, and Policy


Widespread wildfires have become an annual occurrence throughout California with massive implications for both the natural world and human society. The impacts of these fires are likely to grow with further climate change and land-use intensification. This class will take an interdisciplinary perspective on forest fires including the physiological, environmental, and social implications of the fires themselves, as well as the result of wildfire policy on nature and human beings, with a particular focus on equity of impacts across class and racial lines.
