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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

The BEHAVE modeling system and its accompanying 13 standard fuel models are useful in predicting wildfire behavior and planning prescribed fires. Typical hardwood fuel situations are represented by Model 6 (hardwood slash), Model 8 (compacted litter),...

The objective of this paper is to explain the distributions, assumptions, interpretations, and relationships of the two compatible, stochastic models of fire history: the negative exponential and the Weibull. For each model the 'fire interval...

Effects of seasonal prescribed fires of varying intensities on density, mortality, stem form, height, and height growth of hardwood advance regeneration were investigated. Three mixed-hardwood stands on productive upland sites were cut using a...

In 1977 the Bear Creek Fire burned approximately 142,000 hectares. It burned with differing severities and intensities, and burned many vegetation types. Since the area was accessible via the FAA airstrip at Farewell, BLM managers and resource...

Forage available to and used by the Alaskan moose, Alces alces gigas, during the winter of 1988-1989 on the Kenai Peninsula (Alaska, USA) was evaluated to test the hypothesis that changes in the quality and abundance of browse during winter affected...

From introduction: 'Forests found on interior Alaskan floodplains are some of the most productive in the taiga (Neiland and Vierick 1978), although they cover only a small portion of the total 45,900,000 ha of boreal forest in the interior Alaska...

A change in the natural disturbance regime on the Copper River Delta, Alaska, has reduced the level of early seral stage vegetation communities suitable for moose (Alces alces) wintereing habitat. Consequently, we evaluated the use of a rotary-axe to...

The shortest answer to the title question is that a fire's effect is independent of its mode of origin. So, rather than recreating the original fire regime per se, it might be more feasible to aim for the vegetation a natural fire regime would...
