Fire and Invasive Plant Species

Fire and Invasive Plant Species

(p.499) chapter 22 Fire and Invasive Plant Species
Fire in California's Ecosystems

This chapter explores the relationship between fire and invasive species in California from three different perspectives: the general interrelationships between fire and invasive plants, specific examples from within or near California, and the use of fire as a management tool to control non-native species. It also describes what an invasive species is and determines the species that are thought or known to present the greatest threats to conservation in California. A particularly important aspect in using fire to manage invasive species is that environmental variability and factors interacting with fire can have more important effects on both non-native and native species than fire alone. Management programs and ecological studies must accept that those invasive species now established as a dominant component of an ecosystem will be difficult to control, or even less likely, to eradicate.
