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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

Spruce budworm (Choristoneura fumiferana) has defoliated the balsam fir (Abies balsamea) component of many eastern North American forests, resulting in widespread mortality of these trees. Consequently, managers have become concerned about the...

Two key observations lead to our understanding of how fire scars form on trees. First, as a fire passes by a tree, its flame length increases on the leeward side of the tree. Second, the cambium is killed in a triangular shape, encompassing...

Future long-term (ca. 100 year) trends in fire frequency and burn patterns were investigated in the subalpine plateau of Yellowstone National Park, USA, using EMBYR, a probabilistic, spatially-explicit fire simulation model. The central subalpine...

The 1988 Yellowstone fires provided a unique opportunity to examine how the geometry of fire created patches affects plant reestablishment. We initiated studies in 1990 in small (1 ha), moderate (74-200 ha), and large (480-3968 ha) crown-fire patches...
