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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

One of the most promising tools for reducing natural resource productivity losses due to spruce beetles (Dendroctonus rufipennis (Kirby) in Alaska involves the use of semiochemicals. Results of past research and development activities on spruce beetle...

Spruce beetle declined slightly, by 80,000 acres, in 1994. Hardwood defoliation declined from 113,000 acres in 1993 to only 24,221 acres in 1994. Spruce forests, however, showed an increase of insect activity of nearly 200,000 acres primarily due to...

This study shows that extensive forest inventory data can be used to evaluate selected spruce bark beetle infestation dynamics. Trends in the amount of area that has been infested and is currently undergoing infestation can be estimated. Trends in size...

Nine factors were initially suggested by spruce beetle experts in Alaska as potentially important in determining risk of a spruce beetle outbreak in stands. Factors suggested were stand hazard, size and trend of spruce beetle population in neighboring...

Stand data from Lutz spruce (Picea × lutzii Little) forest types occurring on the Kenai Peninsula were analyzed by tree-based classification to develop a decision tree for classifying spruce beetle (Dendroctonus Rufipennis Kirby.) hazard. Model...

The spruce beetle, Dendroctonus rufipennis (Kirby), has had a major effect on the spruce forests of southcentral Alaska. In one area of the Chugach National Forest, 51% of the Lutz spruce, Picea lutzii Little, or nearly 90% of the commercial stand...

The impact of competitors, parasites and predators on spruce beetle Dendroctonus rufipennis (Kirby) broods was studied at an endemic population site near Fairbanks, Alaska, as well as at an epidemic area near Summit Lake and Cooper Landing. Logs of...

Species richness did not change on burned plots but declined 24% on the non-burned plots. Compositional changes resulted in changed vegetation types for about one half of both the burned and not-burned plots. It appears that regeneration requirements (...
