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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

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...

A Mapped Atmosphere-Plant-Soil System (MAPSS) has been constructed for simulating the potential biosphere impacts and biosphere-atmosphere feedbacks from climatic change. The system calculates the potential vegetation type and leaf area that could be...

Burned and unburned sites (4 ha each) of black and white spruce in interior Alaska were studied in 1993 and 1994 within and adjacent to an area burned by wildfire in 1990. The main purpose of the research was to quantify fuel consumption and carbon...

Models of terrestrial vegetation distribution change during warming have generally paid little attention to ecological disturbances such as fire, even though these have been shown to be vitally important. A model predicting regionally dominant...

The development of forests in Pukaskwa National Park, Ontario, Canada, was simulated over 150 years to investigate boreal carbon dynamics and to test the feasibility of simulating large tracts of heterogeneous boreal forest. Pukaskwa National Park,...

Fire strongly influences carbon cycling and storage in boreal forests. In the near-term, if global warming occurs, the frequency and intensity of fires in boreal forests are likely to increase significantly. A sensitivity analysis on the relationship...

Structure of native vertebrate faunas within 12 different forest types were related to features of the natural fire regime. Relations between faunal structure and fire regime followed patterns expected if faunas were adapted to fire regimes....

Experiments conducted in wet-meadows in northeastern Alberta, Canada, tested hypotheses about species response to environmental changes expected during global warming. We hypothesized that (i) a lower water table would decrease abundance of the...
