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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.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 number of modeling tools are required to go from short-term treatments to long-term objectives expressed as desired future conditions. Three models are used in an example that starts with determining desired stand level structure and ends with the...

An understanding of the interaction of fuel, fire, burn severity, site, and site vegetation, is essential to predicting the primary and secondary short term and long term impacts of fire. After analyzing fire behavior and by following the changes in...

The use of prescribed burning as a tool for forest fire prevention is becoming a more common practice in Pinus pinaster plantations of Northern Portugal. Prescribed fire is used to reduce the understory vegetation with the goal of reducing fuel hazard...

The moisture content of material on a forest floor can play a significant role in its potential for fire ignition and resulting severity, especially in boreal ecosystems that contain deep layers of moss. To better understand the effect of weather and...

The literature describing animals’ behavioral responses to fire, discussed in chapter 3, is limited. Furthermore, short-term responses do not provide insights about the vigor or sustainability of the species in an area. Studies of animal populations...
