Title: Fire: Friend or Foe?
Blurb: We tend to fear fire, but fire is a natural process that can benefit many ecosystems. How has the role of fire on Earth changed over time? And what does the future look like as global change further complicates our perception of fire? Join Dr. Emily Fusco and George LoCascio as we discuss the past, present, and future of fire.
George LoCascio has his master’s in ECO and is a lecturer at UMass. He has worked as a forestry technician and worked in fire prevention. His research is botanical in nature and focuses on smoke chemistry of native New England plants.
