Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center
It presents the latest "how-to-do-burning" strategies and is supplemented with summaries of data collected from over 900 grassland fires.
The manual results from the cooperative effort and support of the South Dakota State Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit (SDCFWRU), South Dakota State University, Brookings, South Dakota; the Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center (NPWRC), Jamestown, North Dakota; and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), Fergus Falls, Minnesota. Manuscript typing and library services were shared between SDCFWRU and NPWRC. Data tabulations and figure drafting were provided by staff at NPWRC. A special thanks is extended to Drs. F.R. Gartner and W.D. Svedarsky for manuscript review and to Mary Brashier, editor, and Duane Hanson, graphic designer, Department of Ag Communications, SDSU.
We also extend thanks to the U.S. Forest Service's southeastern region for permission to use figures on patterns of spreading fire as presented in Mobley et al (1977).
