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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Changes in the seasonal CO2 flux of the boreal forests may result from increased atmospheric CO2 concentrations and associated global warming patterns. To monitor this potential change, a combination of information derived from remote sensing data,...

Airborne SAR data gathered by the NASA/JPL three-frequency, polarimetric, radar system in winter, spring, and summer over the Bonanza Creek Experimental Forest, near Fairbanks, AK, are compared to estimates of whole-tree aboveground dry biomass from 21...

Mapping of forest types in the Tanana river flood-plain, interior Alaska, is performed using a maximum-a-posteriori Bayesian classifier applied on SAR data acquired by the NASA/JPL three-frequency polarimetric AIRSAR system on several dates. Five...

Dominating all aspects of forest ecosystem structure and function in the Alaskan taiga is the cold environment. Low mean annual temperature (-3.5°C) and a short growing season (90–100 days) result in a restricted period during which biological activity...

The forests of interior Alaska are used for a variety of consumptive and nonconsumptive uses. Multiple- or single-use management of these forests requires a working knowledge of how these uses affect the sustained yield or availability of a particular...

Plant communities in taiga forest ecosystems harbor an array of insects that exploit the vast biomass within these ecosystems. Phytophagous insects with associated parasites, predators, and saprophytes form a discrete insect community. Phytophagous...

The primary environmental variable that appears to regulate the function and, to some extent, the structure of Alaskan taiga ecosystems is soil temperature (Van Cleve et al. 1983, Van Cleve and Dyrness 1983). The structural and functional changes that...

The studies described in this volume were conducted in the boreal forest zone of central Alaska. This high-latitude setting has a continental climate characterized by low annual precipitation (285 mm at Fairbanks), low humidity, low cloudiness, and...

The bryophytes of the boreal forest are interesting in that they may form a minor element of the community in terms of biomass, while simultaneously being a major element in terms of cover and primary productivity. Even more importantly, the mosses may...
