Congratulations to Carrie Levine for publishing a ground-breaking study! Levine’s paper refutes previous research that was the basis for a lawsuit against restoration efforts following the Rim Fire.
Carrie’s paper, published in Ecological Applications, highlighted critical flaws in previous analyses that led to erroneous conclusions about Sierra forest density.
Her work provides a corrected and accurate description of forest density, which will help inform future management and restoration in the Sierra Nevada. For more information see the Berkeley news report!And the Friday Flash e-news report!
