Two hundred fifteen references are discussed in detail under 14 chapters covering all aspects of fire effects and fire control. Although fire effects on wetlands are not specifically described, all effects on wildlife, including many species now known to be adapted to the early seral stages maintained by fire, are listed as negative. The text summarizes viewpoints of the time, many of which were disproven by research beginning in the mid-1970's. [K-L-S]
