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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

A large region of central and western Canada experienced a particularly severe forest fire season during 1980 in terms of the number of fire starts, area burned, and suppression expenditures. In Alberta, most of the fire occurred during April and May...

The structure and function of taiga ecosystems over a 3,600,000 ha area of northeastern interior Alaska was shown to be consistent with a hypothesis relating vegetative structure and dynamics to site nutrient status and soil temperature. Ordination of...
