The invasive grass-fire cycle in the North Central U.S.

Summary: States in the North Central region have been invaded by grass species capable of altering fire regimes and creating self-perpetuating 'grass-fire cycles'. Under climate change, these grasses may interact with drought and fire to burn more and exclude native species. Managers can plan for these interactions and create collaborative communities to address these complex challenges.
