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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

One of the goals of ecosystem management has been to maintain plant specie diversity. Emulating the "natural” (pre-European) fire regime is often proposed as a means of accomplishing this goal in fire-influenced boreal forest ecosystems. Here we...

1 We examined the validity of classifying tree species as early, mid-, or late-successional based on age and height-growth rates, by comparing the age and height-growth rates of trees in the boreal forest. 2 Age was first examined using the traditional...

The objective of this paper is to explain the distributions, assumptions, interpretations, and relationships of the two compatible, stochastic models of fire history: the negative exponential and the Weibull. For each model the 'fire interval...

A study was made of buried seeds in 62 cylindrical cores of litter and soil (10 cm diameter X 10 cm depth) collected from 10 sites, on which fires had occurred 42-180 years previously, on upland soil with a vegetation of lichen woodland and a tree...
