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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Physical and chemical variables were measured in 35 lakes from Wood Buffalo National Park, northern Alberta and the Northwest Territories, Canada. Of these lakes, 22 were sinkholes, situated on limestone and gypsum, five were situated on the Canadian...

Mimicking of natural disturbance for ecosystem management requires an understanding of the disturbance processes and the resulting landscape patterns. Since fire is the major disturbance in the boreal forest, three widely held beliefs about fire...

Introduction...'Fire and climate are closely linked (Swetnam 1993). According to simulations of various general circulation models (GCMs), the earth's climate will be 1-3.5º C warmer by the end of the next century due to increasing...

All species have evolved in the presence of disturbance, and thus are in a sense matched to the recurrence pattern of the perturbations. Consequently, disturbances within the typical range, even at the extreme of that range as defined by large,...

In this article, we develop a heuristic model of ecosystem-disturbance dynamics that illustrates a range of responses of disturbance impact to gradients of increasing disturbance extent, intensity, or duration. Three general kinds of response are...

We review and compare well-studied examples of five large, infrequent disturbances (LIDs)--fire, hurricanes, tornadoes, volcanic eruptions, and floods--in terms of the physical processes involved, the damage patterns they create in forested landscapes...

In this study, we measured rough harvester ant, Pogonomyrmex rugosus Emery, foraging activity, numbers and types of food items collected by foragers, ant foraging efficiency, and maximum foraging distances in a desert grassland site in central New...

From 1980- 1989, fires burned 32 440 km² of boreal forest, 200 km south of the forest-tundra border in northern Quebec, Canada. An assessment of the impact of fire on tree population densities was carried out by comparing the number of Pinus banksiana...

The objective of this study is to determine the factors responsible for the distribution of Pinus resinosa (red pine) at its northern limit in northwestern Quebec. Pinus resinosa is found only on islands and protected lake shores at its northern...
