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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.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... 'One of the potential problems with the use of prescribed burning in the past has been the lack of any systematic investigation into the ecological effects of this forest management practice on the ecosystem. In 1991, the planning...

Breeding populations of the fire-adapted carabid-beetle A. quadripunctatum were found in most of the fifteen investigated burned, uncut forests, but not in any of the fifteen burned clear-cuts, although a few immigrants were found in two of them. The...

Bromus inermis Leyss (smooth brome) is an invasive perennial grass in Fescue Prairie in North America. Prescribed burning is a potential method of controlling this exotic, but its responses to burning in this grassland are not known. This study was...

Planning prescribed fires for optimal periods which results in emissions reduction is an extremely useful air quality management technique. New information suggests that one more useful tool in smoke management may involve using the capacity of the...

Traditionally, in the Southwest, ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) red slash has not been treated with fire to meet resource objectives until all slash has fully cured, usually a 2-to-4-year wait. Waiting for slash to cure is still the widespread...
