Lecture: Plants and Fire: Friends or Foes?

PhD candidate  Kaz Uyehara will introduce the basics of fire ecology and discuss the ways in which plants and fires interact in different fire-prone ecosystems. Uyehara's focus will be on the potential for plants to actively use fire for their own benefit in a game theory context and how this may lead to alternative stable states on the ecosystem scale.
