Ecology and the Limits of Suppression in the Postwar Era
This chapter discusses fire suppression after the Second World War. Fire suppression and a growing interest in the use of fire as a management tool collided, highlighted by new experiences within the park system. New ideas emerged throughout the park system and managers at the grassroots level began to experiment with new ideas. The experience of parks in the eastern part of the country also required a different set of precepts for management. The result was wholesale experimentation with fire in some eastern parks even as the Sierra Nevada parks, Yellowstone, and Glacier continued with the old suppression regime.
