Year after year massive fires continue to rip through the wildland-urban interface (WUI) in Colorado, but in the face of climate change and a warming climate, our beloved forests might not return after these catastrophic events.
CU Boulder PhD student Monica Rother investigates these post-fire ecosystems in an effort to predict what the Colorado Front Range might look like in a warmer, drier future.
