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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Two lines of Japanese quail (AR2.5 and AR3) selected for resistance to aflatoxin and a nonselected control line (NS) were fed diets containing 0, 10, and 20 µg of aflatoxin/g of feed. Line-related reductions in mortality and growth inhibition clearly...

Rate of fire spread and flame length were observed on six prescribed headfires in the sagebrush (Artemisia)/bunchgrass vegetation type in western North America. Spread rate and flame length predictions from the fire behavior prediction system BEHAVE...

From the Introduction: 'It is only recently, however, that prescribed burning has been introduced in Manitoba and Saskatchewan and, consequently, relatively few peple in these provinces are experienced in its use. It is for this reason that this...

From the Summary:'Some of the characteristics of areal rainfall have been examined for the purposes of assessing the extent to which a point observation is representative of whether or not an area has received rain. Only summer rainfall data were...

Results and analysis of an experimental burning study on the fire behavior in boreal mixedwood slash in the northern Ontario's Clay Belt Region are presented. Horizontal discontinuity in this fuel type makes fire spread difficult when the fire...
