Research that defines the role of fire in upland red oak-pine ecosystems in central Ontario is being conducted by the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Silviculture program. Site-specific fire histories are being developed that document fire frequency, fire behavior, fire effects on forest regeneration and grwoth, and the influnce of human activites on fire disturbances. This information will provide an ecological basis for developing silviculture prescriptions that use prescribed burning to promote oak regeneration, and to maintain or restore fire dependent forests by emulating natural disturbance processes.
