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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Four centuries of land use history were compared to fire regime characteristics along a use-intensity gradient. Changes in intensity and type of utilization varied directly with changes in fire regime characteristics near population centers, while...

In 1975 nd 1976, an experimental burning program was conducted in an immature stand of boreal jack pine (Pinus banksiana Lamb.) growing on level, granitic outwash sands in northern Ontario. Nine 0.4-ha plots were burned under a range of fire weather...

Most ecosystems in North America evolved with the aid of periodic fires. Managers of natural areas, including prairies and wetlands, who seek to maintain ecologically diverse sites will at some point explore the use of fire in their management program...

The soil seed bank (seed and vegetative propagules) of a jack pine (Pinus banksiana Lamb.) ecosystem was investigated using direct propagule emergence from soil cores in greenhouse experiments, and visual examination of rhizome/rooting systems in situ...

Fire spread in wildland fuels is modeled as the steady, longitudinal propagation of an isothermal surface at ignition temperature by the process of radiation transport through a uniform layer of randomly-distributed, thermally-thin, radiometrically-...

The relationships between fire severity and fire-induced nutrient losses to the atmosphere and through soil leaching were investigated using small (4m²) plots in logging slash. The study utilized (Pseudotsuga menziesii - Tsuga heterophylla - thuja...

Vascular plants recorded within 50 one metre square quadrats in 1997 in an area cut and burned 37 years earlier revealed an unusually high species diversity with 87 native vascular plant species, which is roughly twice as high as that recorded in...
