Fire focus of two new OSU natural resource courses


Students with Oklahoma State University's department of natural resource ecology and management will be blazing new educational trails this fall, thanks to two new courses.

Undergraduate students can take Wildland Fire Ecology and Management while graduate students can enroll in Ecology in Fire Dependent Ecosystems. These fire-related courses will explore the inner workings of virtually every ecosystem.

"Fire is an integral part of most natural ecosystems; these courses will help students understand how fires behave in different plant communities and how those communities react to fire," said Keith Owens NREM department head. "Some species are very intolerant of fire but others absolutely depend on fire to persist in the plant community."
