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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Postfire tree recruitment in the boreal forest is restricted to patches from which the duff (organic layer) has been removed by fire. Duff consumption occurs by smoldering combustion, propagation of which is determined by bulk density, moisture content...

One of the goals of ecosystem management has been to maintain plant specie diversity. Emulating the "natural” (pre-European) fire regime is often proposed as a means of accomplishing this goal in fire-influenced boreal forest ecosystems. Here we...

1 We examined the validity of classifying tree species as early, mid-, or late-successional based on age and height-growth rates, by comparing the age and height-growth rates of trees in the boreal forest. 2 Age was first examined using the traditional...

Surface fire intensity (kilowatts per metre) and crown fire initiation were predicted using Rothermel's 1972 and Van Wagner's 1977 fire models with fuel data from 47 upland subalpine conifer stands (comprising Pinus contorta var. latifolia,...

The objective of this paper is to explain the distributions, assumptions, interpretations, and relationships of the two compatible, stochastic models of fire history: the negative exponential and the Weibull. For each model the 'fire interval...

The benefits from fire use - including hazard reduction, silvicultural manipulation, pathogen control, and nutrient recycling - might be forfeited by public reaction to smoke, whether harmful or not. Generally, the public desires alternatives to...
