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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Yellow cedar (Chamaecyparis nootkatensis) is a valuable tree species that is experiencing an extensive forest decline on over 200,000 ha of unmanaged forest in southeast Alaska. Biotic factors appear secondary and some abiotic factor is probably the...

Heart rot fungi cause substantial economic loss in many forests, but their ecological roles in altering the speed or direction of succession are frequently overlooked. As heart rot induces trees to die standing or, more commonly, by bole breakage, the...

The impact of competitors, parasites and predators on spruce beetle Dendroctonus rufipennis (Kirby) broods was studied at an endemic population site near Fairbanks, Alaska, as well as at an epidemic area near Summit Lake and Cooper Landing. Logs of...

Four stages of thermal degradation of peat are distinguished in the southern taiga subzone of western Siberia; the stages are determined by the types of fires and their intensity. Fire strongly affects compaction of peat, which leads to a significant...

Species richness did not change on burned plots but declined 24% on the non-burned plots. Compositional changes resulted in changed vegetation types for about one half of both the burned and not-burned plots. It appears that regeneration requirements (...

The effects of two large experimental crude oil spills conducted in the winter and summer 1976 in a permafrost-underlain black spruce forest of interior Alaska were assessed 15 years after the spills. Effects on permafrost, as determined from...

Diversity of passerine birds and mammals was estimated in well-drained areas located at proximity of the hydroelectric reservoir La Grande-3, where natural fire regime still prevails in the absence of forest exploitation. Forest stands were divided up...

The woody vegetation that developed after clear felling and logging 131 stands dominated by Picea mariana was compared with that of stands that developed after fire in boreal forests of Ontario. Each dataset represents a stand chronosequence on a range...

Arboreal succession in the southern boreal forest of QuTbec was documented through a dendroecological analysis of a mid-successional stand originating from fire 75 years ago. The studied stand was located in the forest surrounding Lake Duparquet, south...
