Researchers surprised by ecological response of re-burned areas in Yellowstone NP

In August 2016, areas of Yellowstone National Park that burned in 1988 burned again. Shortly after, in October 2016, ecologist Monica Turner and her team of graduate students visited the park to begin to assess the landscape.


"We saw these areas where everything was combusted and we hadn't seen that previously," says Turner, a professor of integrative biology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison who has closely studied Yellowstone's response to fire since 1988. "That was surprising."
