The Science Application & Communication (SA&C) staff is pleased to announce the winners of the 2015 RMRS Science You Can Use Bulletin award call. The Bulletin is a science synthesis publication created by RMRS with a current circulation of several thousand land and resource managers, decision makers, and scientists in the Interior West, as well as our Congressional representatives. Each Bulletin delivers a feature-length story highlighting the work of RMRS scientists, technicians, and collaborators, synthesizing a variety of their scientific studies and publications and providing key findings and management implications.
Earlier this year, SA&C issued a request for proposals to RMRS scientists and technicians for research they would like to see featured in the Bulletin. A review panel selected six proposals of the nine submitted. Each selected proposal receives $3,000 in project funding and a Bulletin featuring the science in mid-late 2015 and early 2016 and optional Science You Can Use Lunch Date interactive webinars.
The FFS Program is pleased to announce that the Fire Effects Information System: Fire ecology research synthesized for managers (Jane Kapler Smith, Janet Fryer, Kris Zouhar, Eva Masin, and multiple collaborators) was one of the recipients of the awards.
