- Both fire and climate regimes interact with other natural processes to direct the formation of vegetation in ecosystem.
- Historical fire regimes have been disrupted in many ecosystems.
- Climate change may interact with other human activities to further change fire regimes.
- Climate change can lead to rapid and continuous changes that disrupt natural processes and plant communities.
- Changes in climate may limit the ability to manage wildland fire and apply prescribed fire across the landscape.
- Approaches to fire management that recognize the potential for greater variability and directional change in future climates may help to reduce ecological and societal vulnerability to changing fire regimes.
