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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

The effect of burn-pruning on the flora in a natural stand of lowbush blueberry was studied over a 24-yr period in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. Treatments were: not burned and burn-pruned every 2nd, 3rd, or 4th year. A vegetative survey was...

Patterns of fire occurrence within the Las Bayas Forestry Reserve, Mexico are analyzed in relation to variability in climate, topography, and human land-use. Significantly more fires with shorter fire return intervals occurred from 1900 to 1950 than...

Pollen and high-resolution charcoal records from the north-western USA provide an opportunity to examine the linkages among fire, climate, and fuels on multiple temporal and spatial scales. The data suggest that general charcoal levels were low in the...

An important consideration in managing fire-prone forests is the intertemporal impacts of forest fires. This analysis examines these impacts in a forest recreation setting by fitting a combined stated and revealed data set to explicitly model the...

Advances in fire climatology have derived from recent studies of modern and paleoecological records. We convened a series of workshops and a conference session to report and review regional-scale findings, and these meetings led to the 10 papers in...

Alluvial fan deposits are widespread and preserve millennial-length records of fire. We used these records to examine changes in fire regimes over the last 2000 years in Yellowstone National Park mixed-conifer forests and drier central Idaho ponderosa...

We inferred climate drivers of 20th Century years with regionally synchronous forest fires in the U. S. Northern Rockies. We derived annual fire extent from an existing fire atlas that includes 5038 fire polygons recorded from 12 070 086 ha, or 71% of...

Our objective was to infer the climate drivers of regionally synchronous fire years in dry forests of the U. S. Northern Rockies in Idaho and western Montana. During our analysis period (1650 - 1900), we reconstructed fires from 9245 fire scars on 576...

From the text ... 'The year was 1915 and the forest Service's brief dalliance with Civil War blinkers and sunlight was a dismal failure (Coats 1984). Frustrated foresters needed to improve their ability to communicate, but radio technology...
