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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

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...

Potential causes for changes in the amounts of carbon (C) stored in the soils of boreal forests were studied by measuring the C in the soil along a 5000-year chronosequence in coastal western Finland and using a simple dynamic model of decomposition....

A stirred water calorimeter measured the total downward heat load beneath a simulated smoldering organic soil of peat moss. Moisture and inorganic ratios (fraction of water and inorganic contents relative to organic dry mass) of the peat moss ranged...

The strategy of managing for 'natural' patterns towards ecological sustainability of forests is currently limited to simple spatial attributes of landscapes. Yet, there is general agreement that landscapes are highly dynamic entities...

Regenerating oak stands on productive upland sites is widely recognized by foresters as a major problem in hardwood management. Recent research indicates that oak regeneration is more resistant to surface fires than its primary competitors on these...

1. We studied the demographic viability of populations of a long-lived iteroparous prairie perennial, Silene regia, in relation to management regimes, population sizes, geographical region (Ohio and Indiana vs. Missouri and Arkansas), degree of...

1 A Holocene sediment profile from a northern Swedish boreal forest lake was analysed for diatoms, pollen and charcoal. The diatom data were used for inferences of lake-water pH, alkalinity and colour, while the pollen and charcoal records enabled...
