Keane Receives Lifetime Achievement Award

FFS Research Ecologist Bob Keane recently re-ceived the 2019 Harold Biswell Lifetime Achievement Award from the Association for Fire Ecology (AFE) for his significant contribution to fire ecology and manage-ment in the western United States and for inspiring and mentoring a new generation of fire ecologists. His re-search focuses on 1) developing spatially explicit ecolog-ical computer simulation models for exploring landscape, fire, vegetation, and climate dynamics; 2) sampling, de-scribing, modeling, and mapping of wildland fuel charac-teristics; and 3) exploring the ecology and restoration of whitebark pine. Over the course of his career, Bob has authored over 265 papers, written a book on wildland fuels, and served as scientist-in-charge of the Tenderfoot Creek Experimental Forest.
