This is really interesting research - but it'd be good to point out that these results are applicable to a portion of California - and do not predict whether fuel treatments would be beneficial to other ecosystems, such as chaparral and scrub.

Sabrina:  
Absolutely. These results are really focused on ponderosa/jeffrey pine and dry mixed-conifer forest, and would not extend to chaparral (fire and fuel management in chaparral is another story entirely!). They also would not necessarily extend to other forest types, for example in the upper montane.
