Abe Abrahamson – Legacy of Wildfire

March 20, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Restoring Fire in Fire-Adapted Florida Scrub:
Perceptions of wildfire in the early 1900s produced a policy of fire suppression across North America. Yet fire is an integral part of many ecosystems worldwide that acts as a powerful ecological and evolutionary agent. Abe will introduce us to Florida Scrub, Florida’s most endangered ecosystem, and the role of fire in Scrub. His long-term studies of plant responses to fire help define appropriate fire management and ecosystem conservation. Join us for his richly illustrated presentation on the legacy of wildfire.
