        Restoration applications of resource objective wildfires in western US forests: a status of knowledge review. Frequent-fire forests of the western United States have undergone remarkable changes in structure, composition, and function due to historical exclusion of naturally occurring fire.

Cohen USDA Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Research Station, Fire Sciences Laboratory, Highway 10 West, Missoula, MT , United States Contents 1. Fire is a natural part of most forest ecosystems in the western United States, but its effects on nonnative plant invasion have only recently been studied. Also, forest managers are engaging in fuel reduction projects to lessen fire severity, often without considering potential negative ecological consequences such as nonnative plant species.

      The coniferous forests of the US Pacific Northwest are some of the most majestic on earth, with thousand-year-old trees towering over crystal clear streams filled with salmon. As commercial timber harvesting escalated after World War II, the big trees fell and species dependent on old-growth forests such as the northern spotted owl (Strix occidentalis caurina) (Figure 4), the marbled murrelet. The rest are managed by local, tribal, state, and federal governments. My agency alone, the U.S. Forest Service, manages about 20 percent of the forest land in the United States. The U.S. Forest Service manages about 77 million acres of federal land called national forests and national grasslands.

One type of coniferous forest, the northern boreal forest, is found in 50° to 60°N latitudes. Another type, temperate coniferous forests, grows in lower latitudes of North America, Europe, and Asia, in the high elevations of mountains.

This volume Coniferous Forests is the last in the series Ecosystem of the World. Conifers and coniferous forests are an important element around us and attract our interest. This volume starts with an account of the history and distribution of the conifers. In six chapters the most important areas in Asia, Europe, North and South America with conifers forest are described covering boreal.
