Fire is a natural form of disturbance that shapes landscapes around the world. Fire adapted ecosystems, such as the New Jersey Pine Barrens, depend on periodic fire disturbance to maintain their characteristic habitats. In addition to wildfires, prescribed fires have played an increasingly large role on the south Jersey landscape over the past century.


Length ~60 minutes  Cost $10


In this webinar we will talk about the role wildfires and prescribed burns play in the ecology and management of the New Jersey Pine Barrens. We will cover succession, plant and animal responses to fire, fire regimes and the globally important Pine Plains.
