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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Prescribed burning is extensively used in wildlife, forest, and range management, and in maintaining biotic diversity. Burning tends to increase food and/or favourable habitat conditions for many upland game and waterfowl species. Prescribed burning in...

A keynote speaker has a unique advantage. Somewhat like a historian, he can look backward in time and also discuss the present. Unlike the historian, he may also point to the future. A keynote speaker also can ramble more or less all over the...

Current evidence suggests that Indian fires substantially augmented those set by lightning in grassland, shrubland, and certain lower-elevation forest types for a millennium before settlement by Euro-Americans. In some large areas Indian fires...

Fire, geomorphic processes, and landforms interact to determine natural patterns of ecosystems over landscapes. Fire alters vegetation and soil properties which change soil and sediment movement through watersheds. Landforms affect fire behavior and...

A theory of ecosystem succession relates the continuum of fire frequency and intensities to mean annual carbon burning in major ecosystems of the world. Low fire frequency and release of C are contrasted with combinations of (1) low frequency, high...

Most presettlement Canadian and Alaskan boreal forests and Rocky Mountain subalpine forests had lightning fire regimes of large-scale crown fires and high-intensity surface fires, causing total stand replacement on fire rotations (or cycles) to 50 to...
