Fire effects topic of BYU geography lecture April 6

The Geography Department at Brigham Young University will host Kurt F. Kipfmueller from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities for a lecture on “Fire-Climate-Vegetation Interactions in a Northern Rockies Subalpine Forest” Thursday, April 6, at 11 a.m. in the Harold B. Lee Library auditorium.

Admission is free and the public is welcome.

Although infrequent, fire acts as one of the most important agents modifying forest composition. Kipfmueller will discuss the conceptual framework that links disturbances with climate change and the resulting vegetation patterns.

He received degrees in geography from Central Michigan University, the University of Wyoming and the University of Arizona.

For more information, please call the Geography Department at (801) 422-5470.
