Expertise: Wildfire ecology, forest ecology, climate change, natural resource management

David Peterson works with national forests throughout the western United States to assess the effects of climatic variability and change on natural resources, then identify adaptation options that can reduce potentially negative effects. This work uses an all-lands approach that includes other federal agencies and stakeholders across broad landscapes working together to ensure long-term sustainable resource management.
