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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Evaluations of fire management programs have been based primarily on ecological criteria rather than on cost-effectiveness. Determining cost-effectiveness poses several problems: current budgeting practices do not encourage such evaluations, assessment...

Even though most North American ecosystems lack naturally regulated populations of large carnivores, these species continue to attract a disproportionate share of the attention of resource managers and the general public. This is consistent with the...

The choices in wildland ecosystem management are becoming more costly and controversial. Legal mandates, of which the Resources Planning Act (RPA) is the prime example, require the use of economic analysis in planning. Economics though often subject to...

Over the past two decades numerous paleoecological records have become available for describing past plant communities. They show that vegetation has changed on almost all temporal and spatial scales in response to natural environmental variation....

Goals for vegetation management in wilderness areas have been difficult to define. Short return interval, low-intensity fire regimes offer the most promise for structurally oriented vegetation management goals, although there are some long-return...
