Last year saw record fires in the West and especially Colorado forests. This timely lecture will discuss fire, forest recovery, and the crucial role that fungi play. Camille Stevens-Rumann is an assistant professor of Fire Ecology at Colorado State University. She has worked in fire for almost 15 years both as a wildland fire fighter and a fire ecologist. She now spends much of her time in post-fire burned areas, hunting for both tree seedling and morels which are often abundant in recently burned areas. Her research focuses on post-fire recovery especially in the face of climate change.
