The Wildland-Urban Interface: Mapping the Story of the Growing Wildfire Problem

cover image of the Winter 2009 Research Review All across America, an important trend in housing?families moving out of the big cities?has been changing the landscape and ecology of America. While some are just moving to the inner suburbs, many are moving to the far edges of metropolitan areas and others are moving out entirely, back to small cities and small towns or even into the countryside and the wildlands.
