Fire History Research in Apostle Islands National Lakeshore and Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore: Park Service units (Apostle Islands National Lakeshore and Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore). The aim of the work is to provide information useful for the consideration of fire as a management tool and to provide some baseline evidence regarding past climate variability and the potential impacts of future climate variations. Additionally, baseline evidence of forest compositional and structural change over time could be considered to better understand the trajectories of vegetation patterns in light of past landscape history, including the role of past fires. STATEMENT OF WORK The University of Minnesota staff will develop fire history for Apostle Islands locations and Sleeping Bear Dunes locations by collecting cross sections and partial cross sections from remnant logs, stumps, and snags in forest stands. Once data is collected, a field sampling summary will be prepared for both sites. After data is collected, during the academic year 2017-2018, samples will be processed, information will be compiled, samples will be cross-dated, and relevant literature, traditional ecological knowledge, and ethnographic information will be compiled in cooperation with Park Service personnel. The fire history will then be evaluated in light of past and future climate conditions and final reports prepared.
