What is Fire Ecology?

"Fire is a natural component of many ecosystems, which include plants and animals that interact with one another and with their physical environment. Fire ecology examines the role of fire in ecosystems. Fire ecologists study the origins of fire, what influences spread and intensity, fire’s relationship with ecosystems, and how controlled fires can be used to maintain ecosystem health." -Ecological Society of America
