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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Paleoecological methods were used to investigate the role of anthropogenic fire in the development and maintenance of the pinewoods of Andros Island, Bahamas. Fossil pollen and charcoal from a transect of three sediment cores was used to reconstruct...

We present results from repeated analyses (1962, 1993) of a permanent plot established in 1947, combined with retrospective stand age structure data, in an old Pinus sylvestris stand in Muddus National Park, northern Sweden. The study points towards a...

From the text...'Changing fire regimes have important implications for the health and function of ecosystems. Forest ecosystems change when fires are less frequent and more severe. The density of trees increases and fuels accumulate. More shade-...

Mimicking of natural disturbance for ecosystem management requires an understanding of the disturbance processes and the resulting landscape patterns. Since fire is the major disturbance in the boreal forest, three widely held beliefs about fire...

Introduction...'Fire and climate are closely linked (Swetnam 1993). According to simulations of various general circulation models (GCMs), the earth's climate will be 1-3.5º C warmer by the end of the next century due to increasing...

All species have evolved in the presence of disturbance, and thus are in a sense matched to the recurrence pattern of the perturbations. Consequently, disturbances within the typical range, even at the extreme of that range as defined by large,...

From 1980- 1989, fires burned 32 440 km² of boreal forest, 200 km south of the forest-tundra border in northern Quebec, Canada. An assessment of the impact of fire on tree population densities was carried out by comparing the number of Pinus banksiana...

1 A Holocene sediment profile from a northern Swedish boreal forest lake was analysed for diatoms, pollen and charcoal. The diatom data were used for inferences of lake-water pH, alkalinity and colour, while the pollen and charcoal records enabled...

From the text...'Fossil charcoal and pollen records from five sediment cores were used to reconstruct the post-glacial fire and vegetation history on southern Vancouver Island. Specifically, macroscopic charcoal fragments representative of local...
