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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Tree mortality in partially burned areas of the fire perimeter was primarily due to woodborer and bark beetle attacks. In addition, adjacent unburned, healthy trees can be invaded within 1 to 2 years by root-inhabiting fungi that were transmitted by...

Fire and timber harvest are the two major disturbances that alter forest ecosystems in interior Alaska. Both types of disturbance provide habitats that attract wood borers and bark beetles the first year after the disturbance, but populations then...

Field experiments using baited multiple-funnel traps and baited felled trees were conducted to test the hypothesis that semiochemicals from secondary species of scolytids could be used to disrupt spruce beetle (Dendroctonus rufipennis (Kirby))...

Direct solar radiation to the bark surface of white spruce, Picea glauca (Moench) Voss, is the primary environmental factor influencing the developmental rate of spruce beetles, Dendroctonus rufipennis (Kirby), in Alaska. A phloem threshold temperature...

From 1920 to 1989, approximately 847,000 ha of Alaska spruce (Picea spp.) forests were infested by spruce beetles (Dendroctonus rufipennis). From 1990 to 2000, an extensive outbreak of spruce beetles caused mortality of spruce across 1.19 million ha of...

[Excerpted from article introduction] From 1990 to 2000 a massive outbreak of spruce beetles (Dendroctonus rufipennis) caused a die-off of spruce trees (Picea spp.) across more than 1.19 million ha of forests in Alaska. This natural disturbance was...

Historically the boreal forest has experienced major changes, and it remains a highly dynamic biome today. During cold phases of Quaternary climate cycles, forests were virtually absent from Alaska, and since the postglacial re-establishment of forests...
