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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

One hundred and ninety-seven boreal forest stands, in a region of Ontario and Quebec south of James Bay, were examined. Tree species were summarized as relative density of each of five stem size classes. These data formed the basis for an exclusive...

The negative exponential and Wiebull distributions were used to estimate stand survivorship curves for forested sites in the Porcupine River drainage of interior Alaska. The survivorship curve of Picea glauca (Moench) Voss sites was best described by a...

The variances of species abundances from 141 upland stands are partitioned into habitat and fire frequency. Principal components analysis is then performed on each of these partitions. The habitat ordination has a topographic-canopy coverage gradient...

Fire, geomorphic processes, and landforms interact to determine natural patterns of ecosystems over landscapes. Fire alters vegetation and soil properties which change soil and sediment movement through watersheds. Landforms affect fire behavior and...

Forest fire systems are compared to the balsam/spruce budworm system. Management of both has been successful in the short term in reducing the probability of fire or preventing sudden and extensive mortality of balsam. But both have resulted in...
