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 The database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress that are not normally found in the published literature.

This paper looks first at the kind of forest fire statistics that are currently available in Canada. The main statistics are number of fires area burned, causes, and control costs. Good inventory data on burned areas are not available. The recent...

The western national parks managed by the Canadian Parks Service (CPS) are dominated by fire dependent forests of lodgepole pine, spruce and trembling aspen. Values at risk and high-intensity fire regimes limit the acceptability of unscheduled (...

In order to characterize the fires regime of the southern boreal forest and to understand the way in which landscape and fire regime interact, a detailed study of fire history was undertaken in two adjacent contrasting landscapes in northwestern Quebec...

The question of which factors limit the occurrence of a plant species to a particular site is addressed by considering 53 cases in which the distribution of pines (Pinus species: Pinaceae) has changed in the last century. We consider expansions of...

Models describing the moisture content of forest fuels are an integral component of most fire behaviour prediction systems. In this paper, models of all aspects of moisture change in fine, dead, surface litter are examined and reviewed. Included are...

An experimental approach is essential to understanding the controls on ecosystem function. An explicit focus on state factors provides a framework that logically leads to formulation and experimental testing of hypotheses. In this article, we present...
