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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

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 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...
