November 18–22, 2019—
University of Arizona Press author Stephen J. Pyne will be giving a Fire AFEx talk at the 8th International Fire Ecology and Management Congress in Tucson, Arizona. Pyne’s talk, titled “Welcome to the Pyrocene”, is on November 20 at 9:05 A.M. to 9:25 A.M. in the Kiva Ballroom. The congress will be held at the Lowes Ventana Canyon Resort.
The 2019 Fire Congress will redefine the ecological concept of pyrodiversity to explore cross-cutting issues across a variety of disciplines. The complexity of wildland fire requires partners to consider diverse perspectives and disciplines at multiple scales to develop strategies for living in fire-dominated landscapes Managers, practitioners, scientists, policy makers, and community members are encouraged to join. The conference will engage participants in presentations, workshops, field trips, fire circle discussions, and networking. Learn more here.
