Introduction

"As more and more people live in and around forests, grasslands, shrub lands, and other natural areas—places referred to the wildland-urban interface, or WUI—the fire-related challenges of managing wildlands are on the increase" (USDA, Wildfire, Wildlands, and People: understanding and preparing for wildfire in the wildland-urban interface, 2013).
