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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

This paper addresses the impacts of climate change on forest fires and describes how this, in turn, will impact on the forests of the United States. In addition to reviewing existing studies on climate change and forest fires we have used two transient...

Fire is an important disturbance in the forest ecosystems of Canada. On average, 18,471 km^2 of forest burn annually, 92% of which burns within the boreal forest. Due to the long history of fire in the boreal forest, many boreal tree species have...

Wildfire impacts on ecological and socioeconomic systems are regulated, in part, by climate. Association between hemispheric-scale climate patterns and annual wildfire activity can be obscured by local factors that also control the initiation and...

Four of the vertical fuel profiles presented in Fig. 3a on page 1552 of this paper were inadvertently mislabelled (i.e., Plot 5 is Plot 8, Plot 6 is Plot 5, Plot 7 is Plot 6, and Plot 8 is Plot 7). Thus, Fig. 3a and its associated caption should have...

Dynamic general vegetation models (DGVMs) represent a relatively new technology and exist in several different varieties. Two broad classes are process-based and statistical-empirical. This discussion will focus on the first of these. Among process-...
