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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Two lines of Japanese quail (AR2.5 and AR3) selected for resistance to aflatoxin and a nonselected control line (NS) were fed diets containing 0, 10, and 20 µg of aflatoxin/g of feed. Line-related reductions in mortality and growth inhibition clearly...

Rate of fire spread and flame length were observed on six prescribed headfires in the sagebrush (Artemisia)/bunchgrass vegetation type in western North America. Spread rate and flame length predictions from the fire behavior prediction system BEHAVE...

From the Introduction ... 'It is a well known fact that the presence of moisture exerts considerable influence on the difficulty of ignition and the subsequent rate of combustion of forest fuels. Its effect on ignition is primarily a result of the...

From the Introduction: 'The purpose of the present study is to determine the rate at which various fuels can absorb water. The present study is concerned primarily with relative absorption and drying rates between various types of fuels. Future...

Results and analysis of an experimental burning study on the fire behavior in boreal mixedwood slash in the northern Ontario's Clay Belt Region are presented. Horizontal discontinuity in this fuel type makes fire spread difficult when the fire...

Because cribs of wood are widely used to produce experimental fires it is sometimes necessary to predict their burning behavior especially when their burning rate is not controlled primarily by some other factor such as the window opening in a...

From the text ... 'Improved utilization of bark is dependent, to a large degree, on knowledge of its properties. Very little information is available on physical properties of bark, however, and none is available on volumetric changes of bark due...
