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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Changes in the ecology of small-mammal and bird communities during post-fire succession are reviewed for the North American boreal forest and tundra. Data from the literature are summarized systematically, emphasizing comparison of the community...

Plants are assumed to adapt to fire regime. The recurrence intervals and spatial patterns of fires in the boreal forest, plus the ubiquitousness of most plants, render it unlikely that species-wide adaptations to burning regimes of particular sizes,...

Knowledge of the post-glacial fire history assists in understanding ecological questions such as succession and stability of the vegetation mosaic, the dependence of flora on fire, and ecological consequences of fires to lakes and bogs. This...

Unique aspects of fire in lichen tundra and fores-tundra were enumerated. THe very high inherent fire susceptibility is related to the presence of lichens and shrubs. Lichens are predisposed to burning by virtue of continuous distribution on the soil...

Fire in the black spruce ecosystem of northern Canada and Alaska is characterized by large and frequent fires that usually kill the overstorey trees and most, if not all, of the vegetation aboveground. Most species within the black spruce ecosystem...

This chapter begins with a review of northern fuels and fire behaviour, and stresses the general uniformity of all spreading fires in vegetation, the two limiting criteria being the rate of forward heat transfer and fuel quality. Five classes of fire...
