Note describing fine-scale relationships between local burning patterns and riparian zones. Island remnants more likely to form in riparian zones.

Note discussing the lack of evidence that riparian zones affects fire patterns over large areas.
Note on island and matrix residuals, patterns and average area that each comprises of a fire event, and planning implications of these patterns.
Note on shape index, variation in shape index depending on internal complexity and management implications of this variation.
Note on the non-forested edge contributions to Foothills landscapes, and the management implications of landscape edge dynamics.
Note on the relative size and number of disturbance patches and fire events in Alberta's Upper Foothills and management implications.
Note on the complexity of age-class distribution in boreal forests as a result of trees that survived fire and gradual rates of invasion after fire.
Note on the difference in precision between stand-origin map and AVI data age estimates.
Note on the challenges associated with estimating size of historical fires, including cutblocks, roads, multiple fire layers, multiple burnt patches.
