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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Lichen intakes by reindeer and caribou (Rangifer tarandus) during winter were estimated using penned reindeer, esophageal fistulated reindeer, and by the application of the fallout radiocesium method to free-grazing caribou. Estimated mean values for...

Five 7.3m x 7.3m exclosures were constructed on winter range following grazing. All feeding craters within the sites were permanently marked. The exclosures were later examined, disassembled and the crater outlines super-imposed on vegetation maps. The...

Lichen forage ingestion rates of free-roaming caribou herds in northern Alaska during 1963-1970 were estimated by applying a two-component, eight parameter cesium-137 kinetics model to measured fallout 137Cs concentrations in lichen and caribou....
