The Wild Nature Institute contributed to a significant new book entitled Ecological Importance of Mixed-Severity Fires: Nature's Phoenix. The book, just published by Elsevier Press, presents meticulously gathered scientific information on the paradigm shift that is changing the way people think about wildfire and ecosystems, including how high-severity fires are natural and necessary to create and renew critical habitat for many kinds of plants and animals that thrive in burned areas.
Monica Bond wrote a chapter about mammals and high-severity fire, and contributed to a chapter about birds. This is the first-ever academic book to address the importance of high-severity fire with regards to the maintenance of native biodiversity and fire-dependent ecosystems and species.
