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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

We examined the relationship between the post-fire regeneration density of Populus tremuloides Michx., Pinus banksiana Lamb., and Picea mariana (Mill.) BSP and their pre-fire basal area density at the spatial scale of 70 m (the width of the stands...

An uplant tundra fire, started by lightning, burned 48 km2 near the Kokolik River in northwestern Alaska during late July and early August 1977. Permanent plots were established to monitor recovery of severely, moderately, and lightly burned areas as...

Climate modelling studies have predicted an increase in fire frequency with global warming as well as suggesting a longer fire season occurring later in the year. Fire scars for 160 years (1831-1948) for Pinus banksiana, and written fire records from...
