Alaska Reference Database

The Alaska Reference Database originated as the standalone Alaska Fire Effects Reference Database, a ProCite reference database maintained by former BLM-Alaska Fire Service Fire Ecologist Randi Jandt. It was expanded under a Joint Fire Science Program grant for the FIREHouse project (The Northwest and Alaska Fire Research Clearinghouse). It is now maintained by the Alaska Fire Science Consortium and FRAMES, and is hosted through the FRAMES Resource Catalog. The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

From the Introduction (p.357) ... 'Fire is a significant component of most boreal forest ecosystems. It is important to understand its occurrence and spread to assess the potential impact of global climate change on boreal forest ecosystems. This...

From the Conclusion (p.402) ... 'Models provide the ability to simulate processes that occur at temporal and spatial scales that are difficult to empirically investigate. We have attempted to provide the framework of a set of nested models that...

This paper discusses the overall effects fire has on the carbon budget of boreal forests. Studies on using the boreal forest as a means to sequester carbon have not adequately accounted for these effects. Among other approaches, it has been suggested...

The importance of measuring and monitoring fire related ecosystem characteristics in boreal forests is recognized and is the focus of several new studies. In this paper we present a discussion on the use of remote sensing for the study of boreal forest...

To determine the differences in tree regeneration after fire and logging, lowland black spruce stands burned (by crown fire) and logged (by clearcut) 6 to 13 years ago in southeastern Manitoba were investigated. Black spruce regeneration was the most...
