Using fire and landscape ecology to understand
social-ecological resilience on Pacific Islands

with Dr. Clay Trauernicht, University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, Pacific Fire Exchange
November 2, 2021, 12:00-1:00 pm (Hawaiʻi time) on zoom

Against a smokey background, a helicopter drops a stream of water on a fire burning up a vegetated ridgeFire is prevalent on many Pacific Islands and can be linked to patterns in vegetation, geography, land use, and climate. However, in his presentation, Dr. Trauernicht will make the case that the drivers of fire risk and, importantly, the ways in which we mitigate and react to fire, provide important insights into how social and ecological conditions confer resilience to climate impacts more broadly.

Join us for the next seminar of the “Slice of PI-CASC” seminar series hosted by the Pacific Islands Climate Adaptation Science Center! The series is designed for a wide audience to learn about climate adaptation research and science-to-management applications for Hawai’i, the US-Affiliated Pacific Islands, and beyond.
