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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Goals for vegetation management in wilderness areas have been difficult to define. Managing for natural vegetation is confounded because 'natural' is not uniquely defined and past interruption of natural processes, particularly fire, has...

The hard lesson that we should take away from the last decade of fire management in drier forests is that a choice to do nothing is a choice of action, not always with a desirable outcome.

Goals for vegetation management in wilderness areas have been difficult to define. Short return interval, low-intensity fire regimes offer the most promise for structurally oriented vegetation management goals, although there are some long-return...
