Adaptation of Plants, Animals and Humans to Wildfires:  What to Expect Following the Pier Fire! with Dr. Jon Keeley, fire ecologist/research scientist for the United States Geological Survey and adjunct professor UCLA! !

Wildfires are a necessary part of the ecology of many wild landscapes in mediterranean-type climates across the globe, promoting healthy wildlands and biodiversity. After an explosive fire year in California, many questions arise as humans more commonly move into areas that are subject to burning.  Dr. Keeley will provide an overview of the fire history of Sierra Nevada forests and shrublands, describing interesting ways plants and animals have adapted to survive wildfires. This talk will touch on important issues related to the wildland-urban interface, as well as the future in an era of global change.!

Lunch is provided
