Human-mediated trophic mismatch between fire, plants, and herbivores

Marcus Lashley, Michael Chitwood, Jacob Dykes, Christopher DePerno & Christopher Moorman
Trophic mismatches are commonly reported across a wide array of taxa and can have important implications for species participating in the interaction. However, to date, examples of trophic mismatch have centrally focused on those induced by shifts in climate. Here we report on the potential for humans to induce trophic mismatch by shifting the phenology of fire. Globally, anthropogenic fire ignitions are phenologically mismatched to that of historic lightning ignitions but the effects of this...
