NC RISCC Network Share First Management Challenge: " Invasive Grass-Fire Cycle in the North Central US"
The North Central Regional Invasive Species & Climate Change Network, NC RISCC, has shared its first Management Challenge, " Invasive Grass-Fire Cycle in the North Central US".
States in the North Central (NC) region have already been invaded by grass species capable of altering fire regimes and creating self-perpetuating “grass-fire cycles”. Under climate change, these grasses may interact with drought and fire to burn more and exclude native species. Managers can plan for these interactions and create collaborative communities to address these complex challenges.
The NC RISCC is a project affiliated with the NC CASC.
