We are committed to conducting research related to management and conservation of rangelands in Texas and related ecosystems with the use of prescribed fire. Scientists in the Fire Ecology program aim to understand effects of prescribed fire and wildfire in rangelands, and we seek to promote habitat restoration and conservation through applied fire on rangelands and by educating landowners about how to effectively use fire to meet their range and wildlife management goals.
