Managers make decisions using sound research and identifying needs for more research can call attention to the gaps. This study shows that increasing research in two areas could most improve prescribed burn implementation. The two needs are: a) regionally specific experimental prescribed fire and post-burn monitoring, and b) research on public knowledge gaps and strategies for influencing attitudes.
