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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

The age structure and growth patterns of 53 young conifer-hardwood stands on upland, south-facing sites of interior Alaska were analyzed to determine the length of time for stand establishment after disturbance, the composition of early-successional...

The advance regeneration often present following clear-cutting in black spruce (Picea mariana) stands is generally composed of individuals of various heights. This initial height difference is hypothesized to affect the yield of the future stand....

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,...

Active layer changes after the 1968 forest-tundra fire at Inuvik, N.W.T., have been monitored from 1968 to 1993 at three burned and two unburned sites. In addition, a burned site has been used for field experiments on changes to the active layer. The...
