Yellowstone National Park Report
There is considerable evidence that interactions among fire, large mammals and vegetation exist in Yellowstone National Park. These interactions are likely complex, and discerning their nature will provide valuable information about basic ecosystem processes in the Park. The fires of 1988 have given us an excellent opportunity to evaluate potential interactions and consequently; provide additional information to resource managers regarding the importance of these factors in ecosystem dynamics.
