Yellowstone: Rebirth by Fire
In Yellowstone's Rebirth by Fire: Rising from the Ashes of the 1988 Wildfires, Karen Wildung Reinhart examines how the 1988 fires in Yellowstone National Park have served as a primer in fire ecology. This book illustrates in text and images the park's regeneration: how the orange flames and blackened trees of the 1988 fires are replaced by dense stands of lodgepole pine as well as a new understanding of the importance of fire to the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. For even more information on the transformative event, read The Year Yellowstone Burned. Interested in other Yellowstone books? Shop all Ecology and Park Management books for helpful resources.
