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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Climate change affects forests both directly and indirectly through disturbances. Disturbances are a natural and integral part of forest ecosystems, and climate change can alter these natural interactions. When disturbances exceed their natural range...

It has been recently suggested that droughts induced by climate warming reduce the catchment export of colour-forming, and therefore, UV-B protective, DOC to boreal lakes, which in turn may influence the health of resident biota. We determined that the...

From the text ... 'Wich is best: bury, burn or both? The extraordinary heterogeneity of the energy system makes it unlikely that any single solution will triumph everywhere. In practice, there will be no absolute dominance of any one strategy over...

Elevated CO2 increases root growth and fine (diam. £2 mm) root growth across a range of species and experimental conditions. However, there is no clear evidence that elevated CO2 changes the proportion of C allocated to root biomass, measured as either...

Three different lattice-based models for antagonistic ecological interactions, both nonlinear and stochastic,exhibit similar power-law scalings in the geometry of clusters. Specifically, cluster size distributions andperimeter-area curves follow power-...

Postfire development of cover and diversity was studied in an upland Picea mariana-dominated forest in theCanadian Subarctic. Short-term vegetation responses of 10- and 22-year-old cleared rights-of-way and a forest site were investigated two and three...

This paper examines the distribution of areas burned in forest fires. Empirical size distributions, derived from extensive fire records, for six regions in North America are presented. While they show some commonalities, it appears that a simple power-...

We present the results of a study to examine the effects of management actions and natural disturbances in influencing the evolution of habitat patterns on forested lands. TELSA, a spatially explicit vegetation succession model with the ability to...
