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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

From the text ... 'Two maps for each of the four seasons reveal sharp contrasts in the amount of rainfall received in various parts of the United States in wet seasons. Two other maps for each season show the percentage of the seasons which...

Present uses of prescribed fire in Canada are reviewed. Fire has been a natural component of many forested North American landscapes for millennia, making it an obvious choice as an effective forest management tool. It can be used in harmony with known...

Simulations were used to investigate the effect of season of fire on seedling emergence in Banksia ericifolia and B. serrata. The simulations were based on models of soil-surface moisture in response to rainfall, seedling emergence response to soil...

A number of nondestructive techniques for analyzing the timing, frequency, and magnitude of natural disturbances in forest stands are discussed in this paper. Intensive age determination of trees is desirable for reconstructing forest disturbance...

(1) The pattern of post-fire vegetation development in Picea mariana (black spruce)-Pleurozium forests in south-eastern Labrador, Canada, is evaluated using palaeoecological methods and vegetation analysis of extant stands.(2) Macrofossil analysis of...

Reconstructions of climate in the Holocene rely heavily on palaeoclimatic indicators such as altitudinal and latitudinal treeline movements inferred from direct (macrofossil) or indirect (pollen) evidence of sites distant from modern treelines. It is...

It is almost dogma that the boreal forest in North America is a fire dependent forest, yet ecologists often do not consider in any technical detail how forests fires produce effects on individual plants and on plant populations. Consequently, the...
