CCSD scientists present research results on the role of prescribed fire

During the week of June 2-6, 2014, CCSD scientists Drs. Matthew Albrecht and Quinn Long participated in a conference and workshop on prescribed fire in the Mid-South sponsored by the Oak Woodlands and Forests Fire Consortium. Each gave a presentation on different aspects of his work with reintroduction and population monitoring of rare plants in the Central Basin of Tennessee and shared the insights resulting from this research regarding the historical role of fire in maintaining suitable habitat for many rare and endemic species in this region.
